UnitedHealthcare members, we're here to keep you healthy, safe and informed.

We want you to know that right now, as much as ever, your health and wellness concerns remain our top priority. We know you're doing all you can to ensure you and your family are safe during this time. And we want you to know we're doing everything we can so you can access the care you need. We know that many patients are apprehensive about coming to the doctor’s office or the hospital due to COVID-19 concerns. However, for some, the risk of delaying or neglecting ongoing medical care can be just as serious as COVID. You don't have to delay care for your annual check-up, chronic care management or other health care concerns. Whatever you need, we're here for you with services like 24/7 urgent care, Virtual Visits and Save My Spot for urgent care and walk-in clinics. Our physicians are accepting new patients and many have same day or next day appointments available.

How do I know if my UnitedHealthcare plan is open access?

Our CoxHealth team can help you determine if your plan is open access. Call 417-269-INFO to speak with a CoxHealth representative. If your employer provides your insurance plan, you can also reach out to your human resource department with questions about your plan. For specific benefits or claims questions, you should call the customer service number located on the back of your insurance card. 

What does having an open access health coverage plan mean for me?

When you’ve confirmed your health care coverage plan is open access, this means you can choose to see the doctors and visit the health systems you prefer within your network, including specialists. For most patients with UnitedHealthcare insurance plans, CoxHealth providers are now considered in-network.

UnitedHealthcare  open access plan allows you to take a more active role in your health care decisions. Giving you more options and greater control, these plans let you get the care you need from a wider network of health professionals. This is health care on your terms.

Do I have to change my provider?

No. You still have access to the same outstanding providers you know and trust at CoxHealth. You can continue your care as usual under your preferred provider with an open access plan.

Do I have to select a primary care physician under an open access plan?

Although most plans do not require you to select a primary care physician, we encourage you to select a one to help you better manage your health and obtain convenient access to routine care, it is not required. Having so many choices can be overwhelming – a primary care physician can help connect you with the health care you need when you need it. 

How do I set up an appointment?

Call 417-269-INFO for help finding a provider and for any questions related to your care or your plan. Or search our directory for a physician and schedule online.
