Why United Healthcare?

Dedicated to improving our health care system.
The health care system isn’t healthy. Costs continue to rise. Access to quality care has become increasingly inconsistent. The entire industry is inefficient and overly complex.

At UnitedHealthcare, we’re committed to changing health care through outstanding service, valuable products and cost savings you can measure, year after year.

Our programs offer:

National Network

Give your employees the freedom to choose.

589,000 physicians and health care professionals. 4,920 hospitals. 60,000 pharmacies. That’s the strength of the UnitedHealthcare national network.This extensive roster gives your employees the freedom to work with the physicians they choose. Members who choose to use the network pay less out-of-pocket. The results are increased access to the right care. Greater employee satisfaction. And a better value for your company.

Commitment to Wellness

We don't just help your employees when they’re sick.
