United in the Fight Against COVID-19
Mobilizing Support for Those We Serve
UnitedHealth Group is leveraging 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 340,000 people and the heroic members of the health care workforce – and the reliability and sustainability of health care delivery systems.
We are responding 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 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.
