Our maternity support programs provide UnitedHealthcare Community Plan members with education, resources and individualized support to help them focus on a healthy pregnancy and birth. These programs are available to members at no extra cost. Incentives may be available for health care professionals and members who participate in the programs.
When you identify a pregnant UnitedHealthcare Community Plan member, you help us connect the member with support services by giving us a notification. You can notify us online or by fax.
Health care professionals are eligible for up to $50 per pregnancy after submitting the notification of pregnancy to us within 10 days of seeing a UnitedHealthcare Community Plan member.
When you check “Yes” to care coordination on your submitted OBRAF, we’ll contact the member about participating in our maternity support programs. These programs include:
