Pregnancy & Childbirth Support

Some medical plans may offer programs that provide information and reimbursements for pregnancy and childbirth milestones. This goes beyond what is required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Some plans offer valuable incentives for participation, the opportunity to work with a Quality Care Coordinator, plus other support for new moms.

Health Management Programs

If you have a medical condition, your medical plan may offer specific programs to help you manage your health. Programs can include –

Prevention and the Affordable Care Act (ACA)

Prevention of disease is a focus of the ACA, and your medical insurance plan may include a wide range of preventive coverage. Some of these preventive health services are available to you at no out-of-pocket cost when you visit an in-network doctor or nurse. When these preventive services are combined with a robust wellness program, this can help provide the support needed to live a healthy lifestyle.


Rewards for participating in a wellness program are available to all Unity members.
