During the pandemic the State of Indiana waived all copays. If you are asked to pay for medicine or other services, please contact us right away. We will make sure you get what you need at no cost to you.

After the public health emergency ends, some members will have copays for:

  • Medications ($3 each)
  • Going to the emergency room for a reason that is not an emergency ($3)
  • Transportation ($1 each way)

The most you may be asked to pay for a medication at the pharmacy is $3. This only applies if you are on a copay plan. If you don’t know if you have a copay call Member Services.

Common issues at the pharmacy are:

  • The pharmacy did not have the right details about your account. Show your Member ID card. That has the correct billing info on it.
  • The pharmacy is not set up to accept your UnitedHealthcare coverage for Hoosier Care Connect. You may need to switch pharmacies. Walgreens is our anchor pharmacy. There are many other pharmacies available to you. Please use the Find a Pharmacy tool on this site. You may also call Member Services for a list of pharmacies near you.

You should never be asked to pay full price for your medications. Call Member Services right away if this happens. We will help you get the medications you need.
