Pharmacy Program 

 

On Jan. 1, 2017, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Nebraska began serving Heritage Health members. To avoid disruption of care, we honored previously approved prescription medication authorizations for the first 90 days. The 90-day transition of care period for pharmaceuticals ended on April 1, 2017. Care providers may need to submit prior authorization requests and renewals.
