Health care can be complicated. In fact, 60% of new UnitedHealthcare members said they don’t have a good understanding of their health plan,1 making it difficult for them to make informed choices about when and where to get the care they need.
Helping employees take a more active role in their care
Easier access to care — virtually everywhere

Whether employees want to lose weight, quit tobacco, get more active or get better sleep, most of our wellness programs and services are digitally supported, making it easier for employees to engage with them whenever, wherever.
With 24/7 Virtual Visits, employees can connect to a provider by phone2 or video anytime through myuhc.com® or the UnitedHealthcare® app. Providers can treat a wide range of health conditions, from flu and pinkeye to migraines and more — and even prescribe medications, if needed.3
Virtual primary care meets employees where they are with convenient access to nationwide providers offering quality care to coordinate primary and ongoing care needs. Virtual visits for primary care are available with UnitedHealthcare Choice, Choice Plus and Core plans through Optum Everycare Now™, a dedicated virtual provider group reinventing how virtual care is provided. Employees can connect with a provider through myuhc.com or the UnitedHealthcare app.
Like a virtual guide by their side, our virtual behavioral health resources are designed to give your employees more ways to connect to confidential support. Whether they want to get a virtual therapy appointment, learn new ways to relax and more, these solutions are built to help make behavioral health care more accessible anytime, anywhere.
