24-Hour Health Concierge

NurseLine

UnitedHealthcare NurseLineSM is a 24/7 health advocacy solution. It delivers greater value than typical triage-only services through increased program referrals, a unique call-back model, member engagement techniques and more.

Members are connected with a single point of contact, a health care expert, who guides them to the right resources. Our specially trained registered nurses serve as advocates to help members find the:

  • Right Treatment: help answer clinical concerns, facilitate referrals to relevant health and wellness programs and provide condition management and treatment decision counseling
  • Right Provider: identify high-quality providers and even schedule appointments
  • Right Medication: coaching on medication adherence, drug interactions or medication alternatives
  • Right Lifestyle: preventive care guidance, healthy lifestyle coaching and referrals to wellness coaching and behavioral health

NurseLine features a unique call back model which enables nurses to proactively call members back in order to close any health opportunities that weren't resolved during the initial call. By helping members close known care gaps, the service drives higher levels of action, creating better health outcomes.

NurseLine is a health advocacy solution that goes far beyond just addressing a member’s symptoms.  NurseLine provides a single-point of contact for members to receive support navigating their overall health and wellbeing.

This high-touch, health care concierge service supports the continuum of health and wellness needs for your organization through:

  1. Navigational Advocacy: driving up program referral rates
  2. Clinical Advocacy: driving better health outcomes
  3. Member engagement: connecting with the right member
