Improving Health Equity for UCare Members
As an independent non-profit health plan serving more than 260,000 Medicaid members in Minnesota, UCare identified education as one key social determinant of health that has a direct impact on the job market, economy, health, and mental well-being of their members.
In 2019, UCare launched a GEDWorks pilot program to a subset of their members, and in six months had already started expanding to offer GEDWorks to more members across the state. After just nine months, they grew the overall seat capacity by 50% to meet the increasing demand from members.
