Prevention remains the name of the game as the coronavirus pandemic goes on. That means continuing to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local guidelines, such as wearing a mask outside your home, maintaining at least six feet of space between you and others, washing your hands a lot — and staying current with your health care needs.

Thanks to your UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plan, you have many options for getting care these days. You have options to see providers without leaving home. Plenty of common health issues (including mental health concerns) and follow-up appointments can be handled with a virtual visit. Most plans have $0 copays for covered telehealth services1. You can also arrange for your maintenance medications to be delivered to your home, which will save you trips to the pharmacy. 

But one unexpected way we can help you power through these days is with the many tools and resources from Renew by UnitedHealthcare®. Available with most plans, Renew has activities that can help you stay active and engaged. To get started, sign in to your plan website and click on Health & Wellness.
