CHICAGO, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- UniCare is now offering Solaura, a new line of health care plans designed to change the way consumers think about health care, help them lead healthier lives and help reduce the cost of health care in the long term.
UniCare announced earlier this year that it would launch a new line of consumer-driven health plans (CDHP) that would be available to large and small businesses, as well as individuals. Solaura will be available effective October 1, 2007, pending regulatory approval in some states.
"Our customers who choose these consumer-driven products will have new opportunities to live healthier lives," said Dennis Casey, UniCare president and CEO. "Our Solaura suite of products puts consumers in control of their health care dollars."
UniCare will offer the following core CDHP products:
-- Solaura(R) Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)
-- Solaura(R) Health Savings Account (HSA)
-- Solaura(R) Health Incentive Account (HIA)
-- Solaura(R) Health Incentive Account Plus (HIA+)
Consumers who select Solaura products may also be eligible for extensive preventive care and personal health coaching, as well as smoking cessation and weight management programs. In addition, consumers may be eligible to receive financial rewards for completing various wellness programs.
"We're providing our consumers with information-rich web-based tools that they can use to research prescription drug prices and estimated costs of care," Casey said.
UniCare's CDHP options combine health accounts with traditional PPO health coverage. Each is backed by powerful online decision support tools and personal health coaching that consumers can use to learn more about their health care treatment and cost options.
