Need may come any day to anyone. Help must be ready when need arise. Help that puts a mother on the path to a healthy pregnancy. Help that lets a family enjoy one meal without worrying about the next. Help that leads a neighbor to a new job.


Speaker 1:

At Optum, we are proud to support the people who provide this help. For 26 years, we've worked alongside you, helping to manage programs, but now reach more than half of the Medicaid population. Our work starts with a commitment to each individual, understanding their needs and respecting their journey. It relies on strong partnerships, relationships built on trust, and shared goals. It results in insights, preparation, and coordination.
