About us

There for what matters™

At UnitedHealthcare, our mission is to help people live healthier lives and make the health system work better for everyone. We dedicate ourselves to this every day for our members by being there for what matters in moments big and small — from their earliest days, to their working years and through retirement.

Plans of all types for people of all types

Across the United States, we offer health benefit plans for all ages, all lifestyles and all kinds of budgets — including member programs for individuals and families, people with health insurance through work, and Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries.

Bringing care to more people

We work with more than 1.3 million physicians and care professionals and over 6,700 hospitals and care facilities nationwide.1  Together, we work to provide more people with access to quality care when and where they need it.

Taking health care everywhere

For people who live and work overseas, our global solutions help provide members with a simpler health care experience — wherever their assignments take them. We also provide health benefits and care internationally through our owned and operated health care facilities in South America and Europe.

Creating a better health care experience

We believe that when it comes to your health, everything matters. That’s why we are constantly working to improve the health care experience and make it deliver for the needs of everyone.

Simplest experience

We know health care can be complicated, so we work to make it simpler — for patients as well as providers. Streamlining processes and providing answers helps make coverage easier to understand and use.

Affordable coverage

We believe everyone deserves quality health coverage they can afford. So we provide coverage options designed to fit all kinds of budgets, and always look for ways to take costs out of the system to improve affordability and access for all.

Quality supported care

We support you in your health care journey. We focus on serving the individual, offering access to quality care, personalized solutions and support for every step of the way.

Helping communities advance health equity

Healthier communities help everyone thrive. We work with organizations, leaders and members in communities across America to understand the health equity challenges they face.
