With the options fiasco largely behind it, UnitedHealth is ready to grow again. A leading U.S. health insurer, it offers a variety of health care plans and services to about 70 million customers.
UnitedHealth's strategy is to be the market leader in the health and well-being industry, serving the insurance and other health service needs of employers, individuals, other
health-care organizations, and various health-care intermediaries.
It expands by developing new products and services for the industry, or by acquiring businesses complementary to its existing operations.
