Health Care Services

Our Health Care Services segment consists of our UnitedHealthcare, Ovations and AmeriChoice businesses.


UnitedHealthcare coordinates health and well-being services on behalf of local employers and consumers nationwide. UnitedHealthcare’s products are primarily marketed to small and mid-size employers with up to 5,000 employees. With its risk-based product offerings, UnitedHealthcare assumes the risk of both medical and administrative costs for its customers in return for a monthly premium, which is typically at a fixed rate for a one-year period. UnitedHealthcare also provides administrative and other management services to customers that self-insure the medical costs of their employees and their dependents, for which UnitedHealthcare receives a fee. These customers retain the risk of financing medical benefits for their employees, and UnitedHealthcare administers the payment of customer funds to physicians and other health care providers from customer-funded bank accounts. Small employer groups are more likely to purchase risk-based products because they are generally unable or unwilling to bear a greater potential liability for health care expenditures. UnitedHealthcare offers its products through affiliates that are usually licensed as insurance companies or as health maintenance organizations, depending upon a variety of factors, including state regulations.

UnitedHealthcare arranges for discounted access to care through more than 400,000 physicians and 3,600 hospitals across the United States. The consolidated purchasing power represented by the individuals UnitedHealthcare serves makes it possible for UnitedHealthcare to contract for cost-effective access to a large number of conveniently located care providers. Directly or through UnitedHealth Group’s family of companies, UnitedHealthcare offers:


A broad range of benefit plans integrating medical, ancillary and alternative care products so customers can choose benefits that are right for them;


Affordability by leveraging the economic benefits of the purchasing power of millions of people;


Access to broad and diverse numbers of health care providers through benefit plans that give customers direct access to specialists without obtaining referrals;


Innovative programs that facilitate integrated care delivery;


Convenient self-service for customer transactions, pharmacy services and health information;


Clinical information that physicians can use in working with their patients;  and


Simplified electronic transactions for customers.

We believe that UnitedHealthcare’s innovation distinguishes its product offerings from the competition. UnitedHealthcare designs consumer-oriented health benefits and services that value individual choice and control in accessing health care. UnitedHealthcare has programs that provide health education; admission counseling before hospital stays; care advocacy to help avoid delays in patients’ stays in the hospital; support for individuals at risk of needing intensive treatment; care coordination for people with chronic conditions; and prescription drug management, which promotes safe use of medications. UnitedHealthcare has designed its programs to encourage consumers to be engaged and active participants in managing their own health and well-being. Further, UnitedHealthcare offers Web sites that provide access to a variety of information, including a directory of network physicians and hospitals, reports on thousands of health topics, a treatment cost estimator, and a health profile tailored to individual interests.


Ovations provides health and well-being services for Americans age 50 and older, addressing their unique needs for preventative and acute health care services, for services dealing with chronic disease and for responding to specialized issues relating to their overall well-being. Ovations is one of few enterprises fully dedicated to this market segment, providing products and services in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands through licensed affiliates.

Ovations’ services also include an expanded AARP Nurse Health Line Service to cover beneficiaries of all AARP Medicare Supplement and certain hospital indemnity products, providing 24-hour access to health information from nurses. Ovations developed an offering with lower cost Medicare Supplement coverage that provides consumers with a hospital network and 24-hour access to health care information from nurses.


AmeriChoice is a leading health care organization engaged in facilitating health care benefits and services for state Medicaid and other government-sponsored health care programs and their beneficiaries, through its licensed affiliates. AmeriChoice is a dedicated business unit of our Health Care Services segment working exclusively with selected states to address the needs of their medically vulnerable populations under their Medicaid and other programs for the uninsured. AmeriChoice provides health insurance coverage to eligible Medicaid beneficiaries in exchange for a fixed monthly premium per member from the applicable state.
