The appearance of a health service (e.g., test, drug, device or procedure) in the Benefit Interpretation Policy Update Bulletin does not imply that UnitedHealthcare provides coverage for the health service. In the event of an inconsistency or conflict between the information provided in the Benefit Interpretation Policy Update Bulletin and the posted policy, the provisions of the posted policy will prevail.
