United in the Fight Against COVID-19
Mobilizing Support for Those We Serve
UnitedHealth Group leveraged its clinical knowledge and expertise to assist those we serve, providing more than $100 million in support to make a meaningful difference in the fight against COVID-19. From the outset, our singular priority has remained clear: the health, safety and support of the people and communities we serve – including our dedicated team of 360,000 people and the heroic members of the health care workforce – and the reliability and sustainability of health care delivery systems.
We provided assistance to the most vulnerable populations, including older adults, individuals who are uninsured, and those experiencing homelessness and food insecurity in hard hit communities in the United States and around the world.
We collaborated with national organizations to provide resources to meet the clinical, emotional and mental health needs of front-line workers; and we responded to the strain on liquidity many provider practices experienced as a result of the pandemic.
Providing Medical Equipment and Support to Fight COVID-19 in India
We responded to the coronavirus crisis in India by funding the procurement of more than 2,500 oxygen concentrators to help address the country’s shortage of critical medical equipment essential for treating severe COVID-19 infections.
We leveraged our clinical knowledge, expertise and resources to help develop and advance innovations to fight COVID-19 – actively working with partners on new treatments, testing procedures and lifesaving equipment.
We have taken steps to ensure the safety of our team members and their families, providing them with resources and support as they continue to serve the members, patients and customers who depend on us.
