Secure Horizons Medicare Advantage Plans

Secure Horizons has long been a branding for United Healthcare Medicare Advantage plans.  These plans have been pretty competitive across their markets over the years.  As of 2012, the Secure Horizons Medicare Advantage plans are all going to be re-branded as United Healthcare Medicare Advantage plans.  This is a definite move in the right direction since people are more familiar with United Healthcare, and may not have heard of Secure Secure Horizons Medicare Advantage PlansHorizons.

Secure Horizons Offer Value for Medicare Beneficiaries

These plans offer a low or zero monthly plan premium, and many of them include drug coverage!  This means that you can have Part D coverage through the plan and pay next to nothing for having the coverage.  The co-pays for doctors visits are also typically lower than the competition.  The plans focus on providing value for the items that most beneficiaries use on a regular basis.  In addition they offer preventative dental and vision care across their markets which most seniors like as well as SilverSneakers!  Silver Sneakers is a national program that gives seniors access to over 10,000 fitness centers across the U.S.  This membership is included at no additional cost.

Secure Horizons Will Now Be United Healthcare

You can join a Secure Horizons plan now and not have to worry about it going out of business.  The plan is not going away; instead it is just changing names to the company that has been backing the plan since it’s inception.  For more information you can visit their website at
