How do I use my UCare Choices plan?

It's simple. When you need care, or to schedule an annual check-up or screening, make an appointment with your doctor. On the day of your appointment, remember to bring your ID card with you to show you're with UCare. Also bring your card to a network pharmacy to receive coverage for drugs in our formulary (drug list).  

Your UCare membership comes with great health and wellness benefits including:

Our Customer Services Department can answer your questions. You can review your Summary of Benefits and Coverage and Contract/Evidence of Coverage anytime by logging into the member site.

How much will UCare Choices cost me?

You can choose from a range of different priced plans​. Costs vary according to your situation - your age, income, household size, and other factors. All in-network preventive care including specific cancer screenings and immunizations are covered at no charge. Those with limited means may get financial help to pay for their plan and benefits. The type of costs you may pay are:
  • Monthly premiums - monthly payments for your coverage.
  • Deductibles - the amount you pay before your coverage begins. Deductibles do NOT apply to in-network preventive care which is covered from day one.
  • Copays - a set amount you pay for covered services.
  • Coinsurance - a percent of cost you pay for covered services.

All plans have an out-of-pocket limit or maximum on what you will pay for in-network, covered services during the coverage period (which is usually a year). Once you've reached the limit, the health plan covers your costs.
