That's why we follow federal civil rights laws in our health programs and activities. We don't discriminate, exclude people, or treat them differently on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. For people with disabilities, we offer free aids and services. For people whose primary language isn't English, we offer free language assistance services through interpreters and other written languages.
The law requires us to include a message in all of these different languages. Curious what they say? Here’s the English version: “You have the right to get help in your language for free. Just call the Member Services number on your ID card.” Visually impaired? You can also ask for other formats of this document.
Call the Member Services number on your ID card for help (TTY/TDD: 711).
If you think we failed to offer these services or discriminated based on race, color, national origin, age, disability, or sex, you can file a complaint, also known as a grievance.
You can file a complaint with our Compliance Coordinator in writing to Compliance Coordinator, P.O. Box 27401, Mail Drop VA2002-N160, Richmond, VA 23279.

In addition, California law requires us to also let you know that UniCare does not discriminate, exclude people, or treat them differently on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, marital status, gender identity, sexual orientation, age or disability. For people with disabilities, we offer free aids and services, and information in alternate formats, free of charge and in a timely manner, when necessary to ensure an equal opportunity to participate.
