Reminder: Life Benefits Carrier Change

In January 2022, QualChoice partnered with Sun Life for the life benefits offered to our group business. We have realized that this transition was not ideal, and we understand the importance of keeping things simple. That’s why, effective January 2023, we are offering our QualChoice life coverage to all groups. Any existing groups will also transition to our QualChoice life coverage when they renew in 2023.


If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please call us at 501-228-7111 or 1-800-235-7111 (TTY: 711). We are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT. 

Maternal Health Awareness Day

Since 2021, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recognizes Maternal Health Awareness Day on January 23rd to raise awareness of maternal health issues and risks. According to the CDC, over 80% of maternal deaths in the United States are preventable.

The QCARE Maternity Management program is available to participating plans to help members enjoy a healthy pregnancy and deliver a healthy newborn. A Special Additions nurse acts as an advisor and guide, coaching the member and sharing information.

Our maternity care manager will:

  • Review the member's health history, diet and exercise
  • Spot and assess potential risks
  • Suggest ways to lessen risks for mother and baby
  • Share information on pregnancy, childcare, labor and delivery
  • Work with the doctor to coordinate care
  • Point the member toward community resources
