Adapt, evolve and thrive in a regulated post-reform era

Today's health plans face increased regulations, consumer-centric models, new technologies and aging, more chronic populations that have led to uncompromising pressures: 

  • Increasing medical and operational costs
  • Declining government reimbursement
  • Higher membership churn
  • Growing employer movement from fully insured to administrative services only (ASO) models
  • Outdated and inflexible technology

A one-size-fits-all approach to health care doesn’t work in today’s changing health care landscape. Optum can help your organization adapt, evolve and thrive as a modern health plan with a focus on automation, optimization and innovation.
