UnitedHealthcare offers Medicare Advantage preferred provider organization (PPO) plans under the Piedmont brand. These plans include benefits in addition to those covered under Original Medicare, including Part D prescription drug coverage.
Piedmont plans are available in select counties in Virginia.
Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans offer members access to a network of contracted physicians and hospitals, but also allow them the flexibility to seek covered services from outside of the contracted network, usually at a higher cost. Members do not need a referral for specialty care.
PPO plans are available as either local PPO (certain counties within a state) or regional PPO (RPPO) offerings. RPPOs serve a larger geographic area - either a single state or a multi-state area. RPPOs offer the same premiums, benefits and cost-sharing requirements to all members in the region.
