IRVING, Texas, December 10, 2021 – The Health Plan Alliance (Alliance) and Uno Health are excited to announce an agreement that supports Alliance member health plans with member enrollment in high-impact social programs.

Uno Health is a tech-enabled service that enrolls Medicare members into many of the state and federal financial programs they're eligible for–including Medicaid, MSP, LIS, SNAP, utility assistance, and Lifeline–unlocking thousands of dollars for vulnerable Medicare members. The extra cash leads to improved health outcomes and savings for all, and a subset of programs drive risk adjustment and plan revenue improvement.

Uno’s engagement specialists use their enrollment platform to quickly and easily identify qualified programs for individuals, streamlining applications and required documentation via a consolidated process. This dramatically reduces the administrative burden of enrollment, and creates a delightful experience for members. 

The partnership will allow Alliance member plans to take advantage of Uno Health’s expertise in identifying, engaging, and enrolling members who qualify for the comprehensive set of supported programs, to deliver a win-win service to their members.

“The Alliance is always working to identify group purchasing opportunities for its members that truly align the interests of both the plan and their members. We’re really excited to launch Uno Health to our membership as a solution that aims to ensure members are getting the best coverage for the lowest cost, and addressing the root cause of SDoH—financial insecurity,” said Jaime González, chief business development officer of the Alliance.

The Alliance is the only member-driven, regional health plan joint venture comprised of organizations in non-competing markets. Alliance members interested in learning more should participate in the webinar on January 18, 2022, 11:00 am - 12:00 CT and can log in to the healthplanalliance.org vendor directory to access this agreement.
