Placemat: Strategies built to drive more health care value for employers
Learn how UnitedHealthcare leverages its capabilities to help eliminate wasteful spending so employers may achieve better outcomes while lowering their costs over time.
Health care spending in the U.S. is expected to reach $6 trillion by 2028, or 20% of GDP.1 And 25% of that spending is wasteful, due to overtreatment or low-value care, fraud, abuse and other factors.2
UnitedHealthcare begins addressing challenges in the health care system, ranging from helping consumers stay engaged in their health care decision to eliminating wasteful spending, through strategies including:
- Clinical and care management
- Network and product design
- Employee engagement
- Payment integrity solutions
In addition, offering solutions designed to identify and manage high-cost conditions and reduce out-of-network usage are some of the ways UnitedHealthcare helps employers lower their costs.
