The Rowan-Cabarrus YMCA association is partnering with UnitedHealthcare of North Carolina and Carolina Complete Health to provide Medicaid members ages six to 18 with $75 vouchers for the YMCAs.
“We are excited to team up with UnitedHealthcare and Carolina Complete Health to improve the health of young people in Rowan and Cabarrus counties,” said Richard Reinholz, the regional executive director of the J.F. Hurley YMCA, in a Salisbury Post article. “Generations of North Carolina families have trusted the Y to nurture, encourage and empower kids to be their best. This partnership gives us the opportunity to engage more youth in programs that help them grow and thrive.”
Members can gain access to the $75 YMCA value-added service two ways:
- Parents or guardians of UnitedHealthcare members may call 1.800.349.1855. Once authorized, UnitedHealthcare members can bring their member ID to the Y to register for their $75 package.
- Parents or guardians of Carolina Complete Health members can request a $75 voucher on the website at carolinacompletehealth.com/vas. They may also call 1.833.552.3876. Members will receive a voucher in the mail that can be presented at any participating YMCA.
The goal of this offering is to provide health plan members with the service to support total health and get kids more involved in health and wellness. The vouchers are non-transferable, are not redeemable for cash and expire a year after date of issue from the insurer. Eligible youth may receive one voucher per year.
If the cost for the YMCA program is more than $75, members may be responsible for paying the balance. However, the Rowan-Cabarrus YMCA offers subsidies/scholarships for some programs if the $75 doesn’t cover the full amount. You can learn more about the YMCA programs by visiting their website.
