About UnitedHealthcare

UnitedHealthcare Retiree Solutions combines two of our greatest strengths: helping seniors live healthier lives and helping the health care system work better for employers and group plan sponsors. We are a leader in the retiree health care field with 40+ years of leadership and sustainability. Our experience helps us provide the service and support your members deserve. What makes us unique is our innovative ability to combine and customize our products and services to create a solution tailored to your needs.

From its earliest days, UnitedHealthcare has focused on the health needs of retirees. In 1979, we participated in early experimental programs offering private market alternatives for Medicare and developed the first policies designed specifically for retirees. This was a strong indicator of the future. Our first Group Medicare plan was offered in 1982 and we are now the nation’s leading provider of Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare Supplement plans and Medicare Part D Prescription Drug plans.

We have been offering Group Medicare Advantage plans with a national service area and Medicare Part D Employer Group Waiver Plans since 2006. We have an unmatched track record of leadership and sustainability and our experience helps us provide the service and support your members deserve. UnitedHealthcare has grown Group Medicare Advantage membership by 1 million members with 98 percent retention since 2014. As of 2021, we currently lead the industry with 1.5 million Group Medicare Advantage members.
