UPHP has a nurse advice line available to our members. If you are unable to reach your PCP’s office, the nurse advice line:

  • Is available to UPHP members 24 hours a day by telephone.
  • Can help you to decide if your symptoms need immediate attention in the Emergency Department or if you can wait to be seen by your PCP.
  • Can provide you information about your medications, self-care, or
    other health information prior to getting in to see your PCP.

You should try to contact your PCP’s office before contacting the nurse advice line. Your PCP knows you and your conditions best. The nurse advice line is not able to help you with questions about benefits or services. Please contact UPHP Customer Service at 1-800-835-2556 (TTY: 711) for questions about benefits and services.

The UPHP Medicaid Nurse Advice Line toll-free phone number is 1-833-675-2744.
