Improve and manage health
When someone is thinking of starting a family, diagnosed with diabetes or cancer, awaiting a heart transplant or facing any new health issue, it’s easy to feel lost and afraid. For most of us, it’s unfamiliar territory. And without support and guidance, costs can quickly skyrocket — with little or no positive effect on health status.
Optum™ helps employees navigate whatever health journey they find themselves on, offering individualized support and expertise, paving the way for improved health and greater cost savings.
While dealing with specific medical issues may be unfamiliar territory for your employees, our specialists understand what they’re going through. They can educate people on their specific health situation, help explain treatment options, refer employees to Centers of Excellence, and connect the dots between clinical, behavioral and pharmaceutical care.
