Unitedhealth Group Inc

Business Description


UnitedHealth Group is a leader in the health and well-being industry, serving approximately 52 million Americans. We provide individuals with access to quality, cost-effective health care services and resources through more than 400,000 physicians and 3,600 hospitals across the United States. We manage approximately $50 billion in aggregate health care spending on behalf of more than 170,000 employer-customers and the consumers we serve. Our primary focus is on improving the American health care system by simplifying the administrative components of health care delivery, promoting evidence-based medicine as the standard for care, and providing relevant, actionable data that physicians, health care providers, consumers, employers and other participants in health care can use to make better, more informed decisions.

Our revenues are derived from premium revenues on risk-based products, fees from management, administrative and consulting services, and investment and other income. We conduct our business primarily through operating divisions in the following business segments:

• Uniprise;

• Health Care Services, which includes our UnitedHealthcare, Ovations and AmeriChoice businesses;

• Specialized Care Services; and

• Ingenix.

Our marketing strategy is defined and coordinated by each business’ dedicated marketing staff. Within these businesses, primary marketing responsibility generally resides with a marketing leader and a direct sales force. In addition, several of the segments also rely upon independent insurance agents and brokers to sell some of their products. Marketing efforts also include public relations efforts and advertising programs that may use television, radio, newspapers, magazines, billboards, direct mail and telemarketing.

COMPETITION

As a diversified health and well-being services company we operate in highly competitive markets. Our competitors include managed health care companies, insurance companies, third party administrators and business services outsourcing companies, health care providers that have formed networks to directly contract with employers, specialty benefit providers, government entities, and various information and consulting companies. For our Uniprise and Health Care Services businesses, competitors include Aetna, Anthem, Cigna, Coventry, Humana, PacifiCare, Oxford, WellPoint, numerous for profit and not for profit organizations operating under licenses from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association and other enterprises concentrated in more limited geographic areas. Our Specialized Care Services and Ingenix business segments also compete with a number of businesses. New entrants into the markets in which we compete, as well as consolidation within these markets, also contribute to a competitive environment. We believe the principal competitive factors affecting us and the sales and pricing of our products and services include product innovation, consumer satisfaction, the level and quality of products and services, network capabilities, price, market share, product distribution systems, efficient administration operations, financial strength and marketplace reputation.
