UnitedHealthcare to expand its Medicare Advantage footprint by 50%

 

  • The company has registered around 6.5 million enrollments in its programs.
  • UnitedHealthcare plans to include additional 3.2 million people across 300 nations in the coming years.

According to credible sources, Minnesota-based managed healthcare organization, UnitedHealth Group Incorporated, is planning to expand its Medicare Advantage footprint in the next five years.

Sources close to the matter claimed that the company has registered around 6.5 million enrollments in its programs and plans to include additional 3.2 million people across 300 nations in the coming years.

UnitedHealthcare’s plans will mainly include $0 copays for cardiac rehab, colonoscopies & mammograms, routine vision and hearing exams, behavioral health visits and primary care. The company will also offer behavioral and medical telehealth visits, sources claimed..

CEO of UnitedHealthcare Medicare and Retirement, Tim Noel, was reported saying that the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be a turning point for the company to scale up its virtual care offerings amidst the surging demand for at-home healthcare.

Despite of the pandemic leaving a drastic footprint on several industries, UnitedHealthcare continues to offer clinical as well as at-home services to its customers with utmost dedication, Noel added.

If reports are to be believed, UnitedHealthcare is currently providing care navigators to individuals that have recently undergone a surgery or cancer treatment as well as patients suffering from ailments such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and diabetes.

For the record, care navigators are a skilled liaison between the patient and the healthcare professionals. They enhance the access to the patients’ primary care by assisting in coordination and addressing claim issues.

In other news, Kentucky-based health insurance company Humana Inc., has reportedly revealed its plans to expand its Medicare Advantage (MA) health plan offerings by the year 2021. Sources aware of the development claim that the company will offer individual Medical Advantage plans in 39 new nations, bringing the total number of countries in its portfolio from 2670 to 2709.
