Working a split shift. I was always responsible for opening the center and closing it.
Case Management (Current Employee) – Greensboro, NC – November 4, 2016
A typical work day is fast paced back to back calls. Management shows favoritism and the hardest part of the job is constant change and no support. The most enjoyable part of the job is talking with the elderly population and helping when you can. Co-workers are awesome. I learned that this place is not good for work advancement nor do they care about work life balance. All the values they teach the company does not stand by.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Green Bay, WI – November 17, 2016
Answering calls about callers health care benefits and quoting them the cost of the services asked about. If you quote it wrong, you could cause irreparable harm to that person's health and finances.They don't train you fully either, four weeks in they throw you on the phones. When you ask for help their response is go read the job aid. I had a caller that demanded to speak to a supervisor. I was told to transfer the member to another call center because our supervisors didn't want to deal with the members call.
Productive and fun place to work if with the right group.
Sr. Solution Manager/Sr. Architect - ORCA Program (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – November 11, 2016
When you work for a company you should be able to lookup to your manager for guidance. If your manager is a person who wants you to shake your head for everything He/She says then then it is not a place to work.
If constructive input is not taken then ????
A manager should have a open mind and willing to accept change. If not then it is not the right place to work.
You must me judged on what you contribute to the team not on being a secretary to your boss.
RN, NICU Case Manager (Former Employee) – Lisle, IL – November 13, 2016
I worked as an onsite case manager. There was a high turnover, low raises each year, and a very heavy caseload most times. There is no room for advancement. There is a lot of favoritism shown and not much support from management. In the 6 years that I worked for the company I had 3 different managers and 6 (maybe more) medical directors. Benefits are not so great for this to be an insurance company. There is no work life balance and there are so many changes that it is hard to keep up. This company also does not pay out the balance of your PTO that you have earned once you leave the company.
Work life balance, raises, benefits, opportunities for advancement
Daily metrics are very high & required on the amount of claims that are mandatory to meet daily, your goals are to focus on quality processing with no errors and to meet production standards.
Co-worker are great they focus on production processing medical and hospital claims. The environment is no talking, only on break or lunches in designated areas only. No asking question to other co-workers regarding any claims.
The company is extremely flexible regards taking time off and make up time.
Provider Service Representative (Former Employee) – Oldsmar, FL – November 27, 2016
UHC Oldsmar is all about your call numbers not about its' employees.Management at best is very young with no experience. It's a good old boy network and if they like you your are not written up with below standard numbers or the days you miss don't count toward your attendance. If you like being a robot this JOB is for you.... If you don't kiss a** you will not be in the click!
Sales force Developer (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – November 2, 2016
The organization is extraordinary with regards to work/life adjust. With my experience I would say they are the best. They are extremely required in the group whether it is the organizations possess individuals or volunteering in and around the group and I am exceptionally pleased to have been a part of that. The remuneration is awesome, you need to go in knowing your value and doing research, as some other organization however.
United does not see employees as people, more like production machines. The amount of work they require someone to do is not balanced between employees and when the volume increases they do not add employees, just expect those in place to pick up the extra. Many times they find ways to eliminate positions leaving less people with the same or more work. They also lay off MANY people working in the US and outsource to India and other countries. It is all about the bottom line at UHC, not about providing good medical coverage to members.
Work from home positions
Insurance benefits are terrible for EEs, no job security, very task-oriented.
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – November 17, 2016
I worked for the company for 2 years as a call center member services rep. We were treated poorly by the company where the hardest part of the job was actually showing up. They did not care about your life outside of work. They just wanted you to be there. Their occurrences lasted one year on your file per occurrence. Once you reached 5, you could be terminated. Which is absurd. That included occurrences for you even being one minute late from your lunch or break despite what circumstances might have played in to you being late. They didn't care.
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – October 20, 2016
I was an RN there. Horrible. Unrealistic expectations for productivity. Watch you like jail wardens Can hardly get a break to go to the bathroom other than your break times. They expect you to get all these RN licenses but give you no time to do it. I had to use PTO days to do it because the board is closed weekends. Pay is lousy... no raises, way too many audits, hard to get time off, have to work holidays and some weekends. Upper management is always changing requirements but middle management was actually nice. The main source of support there is your fellow co-workers.
The other nurses are great. Middle management was nice
Unrealistic productivity expectations, very poor raises if any
There is not a work life balance that belongs to United. However their recruiters help to remind you that for some people coming from a retail or hospice environment, UHG pays double. The benefits were great the first year and then the required HSA bundled high deductible plans were being pushed. I felt management was held to a different standard. Their mandatory meetings in mid-day left much to the imagination. So much needs to be examined at sporadic intervals to know what actually is the UHG culture.
Provides healthcare needs to our military and veterans, as well as their families.
Referral Management Specialist (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 29, 2016

Short breaks, looking at computer for 8+ hours daily
Claims Adjuster (Current Employee) – Davenport, IA – October 15, 2016
A professional business setting with high expectations. I have learned a lot about the health industry. Everyone that I am surrounded by including management are understanding, kind, and willing to aid as much as possible. The hardest part of my job is learning multiple state regulations for health insurance claims all at once. What i most enjoy about my job is the flexibility with work at home options.
Flexibility with work from home
Leadership skills lack quality in effectively assisting further knowledge of job skills
Field Based RN Case Manager (Current Employee) – Blue Ash, OH – October 13, 2016
United health group is a very large organization that offers many opportunities and areas for growth.The most enjoyable part of my day includes caring for patients and interacting with families and staff. I have learned a lot working at united health group working closing with NP's and MD's.
Good benefits and salary.
As with any job one will encounter challenges, such as unhappy co worker that can make the job difficult.
Remote Senior Medical Coder (Current Employee) – Remote – October 25, 2016
Enjoy the autonomy of remote work though, you may miss communicating with peers as you would at a regular 9 - 5. The company is expanding and if you meet expectations you will be along for the ride. Must be dependable and focused in order to be successful as a coder here. The pay does not meet expectations of such a large healthcare organization but there is plenty of OT offered and an annual bonus based on your performance/department goals.
Working remotely, good benefits (cost), overtime available, tons of postions/opportunity with organization, tuition reimbursement even for part timers
Pay not so hot, production based for coders, sense of isolation though you are apart of a huge team of people you'll never really get to know
