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. As of January 2020, we have added more than 576,000 members to our Group Medicare Advantage PPO plan over the last four years, totaling 1.3 million members, and we currently lead the industry with an estimated 28.1 percent share of the Group Medicare Advantage market.
