UnitedHealthcare has now provided more than 5 million in-home clinical visits through its HouseCalls program, bringing potentially life-saving preventive care to people enrolled in its Medicare Advantage plans in the comfort of their homes. Since UnitedHealthcare introduced HouseCalls in 2012, the program has helped tens of thousands of seniors avoid potential hospital admissions by identifying health concerns and enabling earlier clinical intervention. In addition, 8.5 million care opportunities, such as overdue cancer and diabetes screenings, have been addressed after licensed health care practitioners identified them during HouseCalls visits.

Erika Zak, 38, has written two of the most important letters of her life in recent months: one, just in case, for her 4-year-old daughter to read on some undetermined day in the future and a second, to UnitedHealth Group CEO David Wichmann, meant to be read right away. The course of treatment that followed over the next handful of years included chemotherapy and liver surgery that left some damage, “a consequence of complications following microwave ablation,” as her doctors, in her home state of Oregon and at the renowned Cleveland Clinic, would detail to the insurer.
Major health care players like, UnitedHealthcare, Aetna and Kaiser Permanente, are increasingly using virtual care or telehealth for primary care appointments and follow-ups.
Today, UnitedHealth Group released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s drug policy proposal:
President Trump delivered a highly-anticipated speech on lowering the cost of drugs for Americans on Friday afternoon.
Standing in the Rose Garden before a banner reading "Lower Drug Prices for Americans," President Trump and Health and Human Services HS Secretary Alex Azar spoke in generalities about how to bring down prescription drug costs. One of the most interesting ideas came from Azar, who said he will ask the Food and Drug Administration to require drug companies advertising medicines on TV to include the price of the medications along with the side effects. The FDA will also be asked to speed the approval of over-the-counter medicines to stimulate more competition.
Alex Azar, secretary of Health and Human Services, speaks as Donald Trump listens during an event on lowering drug prices outside the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Friday, May 11, 2018. “We're very much eliminating the middlemen,” Trump said of his administration’s proposed “American Patients First” blueprint to lower prices.
Moody's Investors Service (Moody's) announced today that it assigned Baa3 ratings to DaVita Inc.'s incremental senior secured term loan A add-ons. There is no change to DaVita's existing ratings, including its Ba2 Corporate Family Rating, Ba2-PD Probability of Default Rating, Baa3 ratings on its other senior secured credit facilities and the Ba3 ratings on its unsecured notes.
President Trump outlines a multipart blueprint called American Patients First on Friday. For some seniors on fixed incomes, the changes can't come soon enough. Seventy-eight-year-old Willie Dawson is hoping President Donald Trump makes good on his promise to bring down high drug prices.
Dignity Health is far from the only hospital player seeking to gain strength through a merger. But it is the biggest.
United Health Foundation awarded a $1 million partnership grant to Circle the City to help the organization provide health care services in a new Medical Respite Center for the homeless at the Maricopa Human Services Campus. The expanded physical, mental health and social services at the new location will enable Circle the City to continue to support patients in successful transitions from inpatient to outpatient settings, and implement key processes and analytics to triage frequent utilizers to appropriate levels of intervention within Circle the City’s services. “Our mission is to compassionately address the health care needs of men, women and children facing homelessness,” said Brandon Clark, CEO of Circle the City.
UnitedHealthcare’s value-based care program for knee, hip and spine procedures has demonstrated fewer hospital readmissions and complications following surgery, while generating total savings of nearly $18 million for participating employers. The Spine and Joint Solution helped reduce hospital readmissions by 22 percent and led to 17 percent fewer complications for joint replacement surgeries, as compared to nonparticipating facilities. For spine surgeries, hospital readmissions were reduced by 10 percent, and there were 3.4 percent fewer complications, as compared to nonparticipating facilities.
UnitedHealth Group Inc. signage is displayed on a monitor on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York, U.S., on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2017. Photographer: Michael Nagle/Bloomberg UnitedHealth Group said it will further expand to nearly 40 markets an effort to pay doctors and hospitals for spinal surgeries and knee and hip replacements by moving to bundled payments, a proliferating value-based care model. The success of a bundled payment model in the commercially insured sector is significant given the Trump administration has waffled somewhat on value-based care models by making voluntary bundled payment for joint replacement in the Medicare program in certain areas of the country.
