The cost of health care in America is too high. People shouldn’t be forced to skip a doctor’s visit or not fill a prescription because of the price.
At UnitedHealthcare, we’re looking across the health system to find ways to help make health care more affordable.
We’re helping reduce high costs. We’re working to address excessive charges. We’re encouraging innovative pricing practices. We call that Active Affordability.
The rising cost of health care is making it harder for Americans to maintain their health coverage – and harder for employers to grow their businesses.
