6 Important Program Information The information from the Premium physician designation program is not an endorsement of a particular physician or health care professional's suitability for the health care needs of any particular member. UnitedHealthcare does not practice medicine nor provide health care services. Physicians are solely responsible for medical judgments and treatments supplied. The quality and/or cost efficiency designation of a physician does not guarantee the quality of health care services members will receive from a doctor and does not guarantee the outcome of any health care services members will receive. Likewise, the fact that a physician may not be designated by this program does not mean that the physician does not provide quality health care services. All physicians in the UnitedHealthcare Network have met certain minimum credentialing requirements. Regardless of whether a physician has received a designation, members have access to all physicians in the UnitedHealthcare Network, as further described under the member's benefit plan. The assessment result Not Enough Data to Assess is not an indicator of the total number of patients treated by the physician or the number of procedures performed by the physician. Rather, it reflects the statistical requirements of the Premium designation program, which includes only health plan claims associated with specific program measures and relevant to the physician s designated specialty. In some cases, there may not be enough data to complete the analytic process from a statistical standpoint. UnitedHealthcare informs members that designations are intended only as a guide when choosing a physician and should not be the sole factor in selecting a physician. As with all programs that evaluate performance based on analysis of a sample, there is a risk of error. There is a risk of error in the claims data used in the evaluation, in the calculations used in the evaluation, and in the way the program determined that an individual physician was responsible for the treatment of the patient's condition. Physicians have the opportunity to review and reconsider this data. UnitedHealthcare uses statistical testing to compare a physician s results to expected or normative results. There is a risk of error in statistical tests when applied to the data and a result based on statistical testing is not a guarantee of correct inference or classification. We inform members that it is important that they consider many factors and information from as many sources as possible when selecting a physician. We also inform our members that they may wish to discuss designations with a physician before choosing him or her, or confer with their current physician for advice on selecting other physicians.
