Get the assistance you and your family needs to stay healthy, to get better if you are injured or sick or — simply achieve your potential. That includes:

Behavioral health is about how you feel and act. It is also called mental health. Your mental health is very important. The UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Minnesota offers Minnesotacare which includes mental health and addiction services. You may see any in-network doctor without a referral for outpatient treatment.

You are able to get behavioral health services without a referral from your PCP. Sometimes it makes sense to talk to your Primary Care Provider (PCP) about any behavioral health problems you have. That way, your PCP can help to refer you to a behavioral health provider with UnitedHealthcare Community Plan. If you want to find a behavioral health provider on your own, you can search for one at any time and make an appointment. You can also call a Member Services Advocate at 1-888-269-5410 TYY 711, for help.

If your drug is not listed on the LOCD, your care provider may request an alternative drug for you that is listed on the LOCD UnitedHealthcare Community Plan covers medicines on this list, including certain over the counter medications, smoking cessation drugs, and diabetes supplies. The plan may pay for other medicines with prior approval. 

You can get your prescriptions filled at any pharmacy in our network. Many are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For a list of pharmacies, use your provider directory or go to myuhc.com/CommunityPlan/MN.
