Severe Weather Special Notice
With any storm or severe weather, it is always important to prepare to take care of your health should you need to leave your home.
Please take all your medications, supplies, and any medical equipment you use with you. Bring a list of each family member’s medicines, dosage and schedule with you.
Make sure you take both your Medicaid and UnitedHealthcare ID cards with you along with a list of important numbers like your doctor’s office and UnitedHealthcare Member Services.
If you are in need of special services or medical supplies, please contact your doctor or medical supply provider.
If you need assistance, please contact UnitedHealthcare Member Services at 1-877-743-8731, TTY 711, 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. CT, Monday – Friday, (and 7:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. CT on Wednesday). We are also available 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. CT the first Saturday and Sunday of each month.
