UnitedHealth Group has announced it will offer a new health coverage option that will enable large employers to provide health benefits to their pre-65 retirees and will include health benefits provided through a group policy regardless of health status. The new plan also diminishes and caps employers' financial liability for providing retiree coverage. Uniprise, the division of UnitedHealth Group that serves large national employers, will administer the program and United Healthcare Insurance Company will underwrite the coverage. The new program will allow companies to provide access to medical coverage to early retirees while also reducing overall health-care costs.
