Expert Treatment and Member Support

We make it easy for members to obtain their therapies, and have access to a variety of drugs for several key conditions. Optum works hard to ensure patients have the medication and medical supplies they need, and we deliver them fast, even issuing refill reminders before they run out of medication. Regular contact with patients and physicians throughout each treatment ensures safe administration and compliance.

Our Commitment to Payer Support

We utilize real-time critical data to help payers validate improved quality, consistency of care, and cost management controls. A payer's dedicated account team is available to discuss prior authorizations with and works directly with providers to expedite the authorization process.

Working with Manufacturers

Pharmaceutical manufacturers face difficult challenges: ensuring patient safety, achieving optimal product utilization and maintaining profitability. Optum® works hard to responsibly support these challenges through treatment education for patients, including injection teaching and education around REMs programs, so you can rest assured that treatments are safely administered and properly adhered to.
