FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. - Do you have a lot of fair goodies and no where to put them? The UCare tote bags are back.
Stop by the Health Fair 11 building and pick up a signature teal tote bag at UCare's booth so you can easily carry all your fun, new stuff around.
UCare is also partnering this year with the Alzheimer Association to provide fairgoers with free education on the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.
A licensed pharmacist will be in the UCare booth at various times throughout the fair.
Licensed UCare sales representatives will also be in the booth to answer Medicare questions. UCare staff also can answer questions about Medicaid and other Minnesota Health Care Programs offered by UCare.
UCare is an independent, nonprofit health plan providing health care and administrative services to more than 300,000 members.
UCare serves more people from diverse cultures and more people with disabilities enrolled in Medical Assistance than any other health plan in Minnesota.
UCare partners with health care providers, counties, community organizations, and other member-directed groups to create and deliver innovative health coverage plans for Medicare-eligible individuals throughout Minnesota and Western Wisconsin, individuals and families enrolled in income-based Minnesota Health Care Programs such as MinnesotaCare and Prepaid Medical Assistance Program, adults with disabilities and Minnesotans dually eligible for Medical Assistance and Medicare.
UCare addresses health care disparities and care access issues through its UCare Fund grants and a broad array of community initiatives. The health plan has received Star Tribune Top 100 Workplaces honors yearly since the rankings began in 2010
