Duration:  60 minutes

Optum, a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group, often conflicts with its own parent company when providing services to hospital clients. You know the facts:

  • Optum is a wholly-owned subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group (UHG), which also owns UnitedHealthcare, the largest health insurer in the U.S.
  • UnitedHealth Group’s profits are reduced when its payments to hospitals increase.

Given the recent $5 billion in Q3 profit announcement and the announcement of 20% lower healthcare costs with the Optum model, do you know how the Optum-United integrated strategy may be impacting your hospital?

Join this webinar to learn:

  • What are the different strategies employed by Optum-United?
  • How these integrated strategies and tactics impact hospital reimbursement and revenue?
  • What can your organization do to identify these new tactics and protect against them?

We hope you can join us for this webinar!
