UnitedHealthcare (UHC) is mailing letters this week to in-network physicians about the managed care company’s physician profiling system, known as the Premium Designation Program. The letter will include a quality rating, as well as instructions for accessing UHC’s online assessment reports and the deadlines for seeking reconsideration. According to UHC, requests to reconsider for reasons related to integrity must be filed by February 12, 2011. The ratings will be publicly available online on March 16, 2011.
Physicians and practices should carefully review the information that UHC plans to post online.
