Remember, your primary care physician does not need to give you a referral to other health care providers that are in the UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of California network. Also, when visiting any provider, be sure to identify yourself as a member and present your UnitedHealthcare ID card and BIC (benefits identification card).

The Choice is Yours
We will provide you with information to help you make informed choices, such as physicians' and health care professionals' credentials. This information, however, is not an endorsement of a particular physician or health care professional's suitability for your needs.
The providers available through this application may not necessarily reflect the full extent of UnitedHealthcare's network of contracted providers. There may be providers or certain specialties that are not included in this application that are part of our network. If you don't find the provider you are searching for, you may contact the provider directly to verify participation status with UnitedHealthcare's network, or contact Customer Care at the toll-free number shown on your UnitedHealthcare ID card. We also recommend that, prior to seeing any physician, including any specialists, you call the physician's office to verify their participation status and availability.
Some network providers may have been added or removed from our network after this directory was updated. We do not guarantee that each provider is still accepting new members.
