Enroll Now:

There are two steps to enroll in GW's Healthy Pregnancy Program

  1. Complete the GW registration form
  2. Register with UnitedHealthcare Healthy Pregnancy Program by calling 1-888-246-7389

To receive your financial incentive you must register with UnitedHealthcare (UHC). When you first enroll in UHC’s Healthy Pregnancy Program you will complete an initial assessment with a trained provider. S/he will ask you questions about your:
* Medical history
* Maternal risk factors
* General demographics (age, race, etc)

The information you provide during your assessment is protected under HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules and will not be disclosed to anyone at GW. The only information that GW will receive is your name, birthday, home address (for mailing information to your home after your baby is born), and expected delivery date. However, this detailed information is very important for UHC to ensure they provide you with the best care possible.
