Complex and chronic care
When faced with a complex or chronic condition, employees have access to ongoing support. From condition-focused clinical programs to compassion-driven support, we help make sure they don't have to go it alone.
Clinical and disease management programs
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 6 in 10 adults have a chronic disease and 4 in 10 have 2 or more, driving 90% of the nation's annual health care costs.1 UnitedHealthcare clinical and disease management programs are designed to provide a data-driven, collaborative approach to helping employees manage their conditions and get healthier.

Advanced analytics help to proactively identify and reach out to program-eligible employees sooner.
Engage employees in their care
Program support includes specialized nurse support, educational materials, access to Centers of Excellence, case management for help closing gaps in care and more.
Help increase satisfaction and lower costs
Employee satisfaction with clinical programs ranges from 93 to 100%.2 Disease management programs generate medical savings of $.80 to $14.05 per member per month, depending on the products offered.3
Support for families with special needs

Eligible families who have children with special health care needs from birth to age 17 are assigned a family advisor who acts as their single point of contact.
