Why UniCare?

UniCare recognizes that what works for one doesn't necessarily work for another. That's why our full portfolio of health, pharmacy, dental, life and disability benefits products can be tailored to meet your specific needs.  

Our focus is on putting our clients and their associates back in control of their health care benefits and financial future. Through exceptional sales and account management staff who listen to our clients and their associates, we can create benefits that evolve over time to meet changing needs and add the most value.  

UniCare isn't just a solution for the moment-we're a trusted partner for the long term for a number of reasons.  


Benefit Needs Solutions

UniCare understands that offering the right types of products is essential in developing a competitive associate benefits program. We offer a wide variety of benefits products that address all aspects of health care, prescription drug, dental, life and disability management, while satisfying the diverse needs of employers and associates.  

UniCare's line of diverse products are designed to meet your needs. We pride ourselves on being an innovative organization that anticipates changing health care benefits dynamics and member and employer needs. We constantly research, plan and develop new solutions that respond to your evolving objectives.  


Customer Focused

UniCare knows that managed care means different things to different people. Each company and individual is unique with very different needs. UniCare helps align a company's or an individual’s plan with its benefits objectives, financial strategy and corporate culture.  

UniCare strives to make technological advances a top priority. We are constantly looking for ways to enhance our online capabilities for our customers and their associates and employ technology that simplifies the benefits enrollment and maintenance processes.  


Access To Our National Network For PPO Plans

UniCare realizes that a successful health plan starts with providing choices. For years, our networks have done just that, giving members extensive choice from a roster of qualified physicians, hospitals and other health care providers. UniCare's commitment to quality health care benefits, broad choice and superior customer service has led us to develop one integrated nationwide network—UniCare's platinum network. Platinum allows our clients and members to benefit from our negotiated discount rates, while providing seamless access to network providers across the country.  


UniCare's Platinum Network covers the United States, giving most members access to network providers virtually everywhere. This means Platinum members can take advantage of the highest level of benefits for covered services whether they are at home, on vacation, traveling on business or away at school. Platinum members can rest assured that whether they are in Dallas or Denver, Philadelphia or Phoenix, they have access to quality network providers and the highest benefit level for covered services.

To meet the needs of our clients and members, UniCare has assembled a team of highly qualified professionals dedicated to managing client accounts and assisting members. This perspective enables us to consistently meet the needs of employers and members nationwide.  


We are committed to providing exceptional service to both clients and members. No matter what the issue, the only name to remember for answers and information about your plan is UniCare. We are your central point of contact for questions concerning benefits, reporting, network interface, claims payment and member services.
