Ucare has selected HealthSparq, a healthcare guidance and transparency technology company serving health plans, as its partner to power a price transparency solution, giving members personalized and accurate cost estimates for healthcare services.
UCare is an independent, non-profit health plan providing health coverage and services across Minnesota and western Wisconsin. By partnering with HealthSparq, UCare will make planning for the financial impacts of healthcare easier and give members an exceptional digital experience with information that is easy to digest and act on.
HealthSparq’s price transparency solution will ensure UCare complies with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) self-service mandates for health plans, which go into effect in 2023, and require that members have access to online price transparency tools. In addition to mandate support, HealthSparq is also delivering meaningful insights to members with the company’s Treatment Timelines. This tool estimates both the time care will take and all the costs involved from evaluation through recovery for complex care such as surgeries.
