United Healthcare is Moving to a Designated Diagnostic Provider Program on April 6, 2022

On July 1, 2022, United Healthcare will begin to implement its Designated Diagnostic Provider (DDP) program for imaging facilities in certain states. According to United’s FAQ document, outpatient MRI/MRA, CT, PET, and nuclear medicine scans must be performed by a Designated Diagnostic Provider in order for members to have the lowest out-of-pocket cost. A member will pay more for services provided by non-DDP imaging facilities.
