UnitedHealth Group’s Path Forward
Learn more about our actionable, practical policy solutions to achieve a next-generation health system where every person has access to high-quality, affordable health care that meets their unique needs.
Now more than ever, we can all use a little help. Access these resources when you need information and support related to your health and well-being. For general health questions, call Health Care Advisor at 800-357-1371 (U.S. employees only). For confidential access to experts who can assist with wellbeing and family support services, contact the appropriate Employee Assistance Plan (EAP).
We continue to provide paid time off for all COVID-19 related illnesses that require you to be away from your work. You will not be required to take PTO or a leave of absence if you are scheduled to work after being diagnosed with COVID-19. UnitedHealth Group will continue to pay you your standard hourly rate/salary for your regularly scheduled hours during any public health agency mandated quarantine period.
If you need alternative care, be sure to check your community resources first — some states are requiring schools or child care centers to stay open for children of health care professionals. When your regular care options are not available and/or community resources aren't practical, consider taking advantage of our back-up caregiving resources.
