How does Medical Management relate to Unity Health Insurance?

Unity Health Insurance is a wholly-owned subsidiary of University Health Care, Inc. (UHC). The University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Authority (UWHC) and the University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation (UWMF) are members of UHC. Unity contracts with the Health Services and Medical Management staff of UWMF to provide clinical expertise on behalf of the HMO's members.

The Medical Management department focuses on two services for individual members: Utilization Management and Complex Case Management. Utilization Management assures that Unity members receive evidence-based care in an efficient, cost effective manner. It is coordinated care by communication between the member, provider and vendor.

Complex Case Management coordinates services for members with complex needs so they receive effective and efficient care. Complex Case Managers work collaboratively with the member, family, health care providers and community agencies to develop a comprehensive plan to meet an individual's physical, behavioral, and social needs.

Unity Health Insurance is part of a contractual agreement with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to provide health care services to members of the BadgerCare Plus program. As part of the agreement, the BadgerCare Plus team is required to outreach to members to provide health education and chronic disease management in order to ensure good health outcomes.
