UCare's Get Engaged! Member Programs
Get Engaged! participants are UCare members who connect with us in many ways, including these programs:
UCare Ambassadors are members who actively share their positive UCare experiences with others. They tell their stories through video, photos, emails, or social media posts on sites like Facebook and LinkedIn.
Ambassadors also may join UCare staff at meetings and UCare-sponsored community events. Regular communications between UCare and Ambassadors keep everyone current and connected.
Do you have a story to share? Then join our UCare Ambassador community here.
UCare Champions are members of UCare Medicare and EssentiaCare Medicare Advantage plans who want to affirm the value of their coverage and services to legislators. We empower UCare Champions by sending them information about legislative matters affecting Medicare. We also may invite Champions to personally express their views at state and federal levels through meetings with Minnesota’s congressional delegation and policymakers.
If you are a UCare Medicare Advantage member and want a say in policy matters, become a UCare Champion here.
UCare Member Feedback Community members are an important and influential source of opinions and ideas for UCare. Members of this group share their views about their health plan experiences, member communications and other health plan matters through online surveys or member focus groups.
If you are a member who wants to contribute ideas and opinions to UCare, please sign up for our Member Feedback Community here.
