UnitedHealth Group is the most diversified health care company in the United States and a leader worldwide in helping people live healthier lives and helping to make the health system work better for everyone.
We are committed to introducing innovative approaches, products and services that can improve personal health and promote healthier populations in local communities. Our core capabilities in clinical care resources, information and technology uniquely enable us to meet the evolving needs of a changing health care environment as millions more Americans enter a structured system of health benefits and we help build a stronger, higher quality health system that is sustainable for the long term.
We serve our clients and consumers through two distinct platforms:
UnitedHealthcare, which provides health care coverage and benefits services.
Optum, which provides information and technology-enabled health services.
UnitedHealthcare, our Health Benefits platform, serves key markets and geographic regions with a broad range of health benefit products and services for both consumers and benefit sponsors. We serve people in employer-sponsored health plans, those enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid, as well as those who purchase their own health plans.
Optum, our Health Services platform, focuses on helping improve the health care system itself, including population health management, care delivery and improving the clinical and operating elements of the system.
Within UnitedHealthcare, we offer an array of dental products under these contracting entities. These products range from PPO plans to managed care DHMO plans.
