Public sector health coverage

Find quality health plans designed to help manage costs and keep your employees healthier. UnitedHealthcare provides health coverage to public sector groups nationwide, including government and education sectors. We work with plan administrators to help you find custom coverage solutions.

Quality health plans and support

Compared to the private sector, benefits for government and other public sector employees tend to be significantly higher and help close compensation gaps.1 So it’s essential to offer employees and their families the quality health care benefits they expect, from medical plans built for affordability to wellness benefits designed to help employees live healthier lives.

With deep expertise and resources dedicated to serving public sector groups, we can help you create the right benefits package. Together, we may help you simplify the benefits process and reduce the cost of health care.

Who’s eligible for public sector health plans?

Public sector groups usually offer health plans to permanent employees, retirees and their eligible family members. Employees who are not eligible may include part-time workers or those who have appointments lasting less than 6 months.
