UCare’s Minnesota Senior Health Options (MSHO) provides seniors in Minnesota who are age 65 and older with health care coverage. It’s a unique health plan that combines the benefits and services of Medicare and Medical Assistance. Each member gets quality care that meets their needs. With UCare’s MSHO, you benefit from:

  • No premium to join the plan.*
  • No deductibles.
  • Medical, dental, and Part D prescription drug coverage.
  • Free monthly membership through SilverSneakers® at participating clubs, including the YMCA.**
  • Personal Emergency Response System for members living in their own homes who do not have coverage under the Elderly Waiver program.***
  • Dental Care for U benefits that include UCare's See-A-Dentist GuaranteeSM, access to our Mobile Dental Clinic, and up to $300 extra per year for preventive and restorative services not covered by Medical Assistance.
  • A care coordinator.
  • UCare's Health Ride service, which offers qualified members transportation to and from services covered by UCare — assistance with setting up rides is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • A Strong & Stable Kit to help you improve your balance and prevent falls.
