In the Community, Minnesota

Reach out, be present, impact lives. Our mission at UnitedHealthcare is very simple – helping people live healthier lives. Watch this video to learn more.

Our mission at UnitedHealthcare is very simple and it’s helping people live healthier lives.

Our purpose is to really put community in the United Healthcare Community Plan.

And our commitment is to serve the most vulnerable.

Reach out, be present, impact lives, and that's really big for us. That's really some of the values that drive this Minnesota health plan. 

We have connected in the last four months with over three dozen community based organizations.

We have connected in the last four months with over three dozen community based organizations.

And I am hopeful that we will have well over 100 events in any calendar year so that we truly do reach out and be present.

It shows that there's people out there supporting other people. They can rely on your neighbor, you can rely on the school, the Boys and Girls Club, UnitedHealthcare, whoever that happens to be.

Today we’re packaging about 2700 bags, 5400 meals.

People will be getting meals thanks to Meals on Wheels and our partnership with UnitedHealthcare.

It’s not just about funding those organizations to do the work. We’re participating in it.

And if we're going to address health inequities and racial disparities, we need to first have a very broad network and we were successful in doing that. 

We're looking to make sure we have in our network providers that are not only within 30 minutes of a member, but within 30 minutes of a public transportation route of our members.

But a bigger part of what we do is really seeing our members as real people and that starts with us being in community and getting to know them.

We want to be here and we want to experience joy with you. We want experience happiness with you.

That's when we really start changing the dynamic. That's really when things start to shift.
