There's never been a time that was more right for people who want to lead. Health care is changing and evolving at a pace that few could have predicted. Technology, ideas and bold vision are taking companies like UnitedHealth Group to new levels of performance. This is the time and the opportunity that can bring your impact to a whole new level. As a leader within our network contracting team, you'll guide the development and support of provider networks as well as unit cost management activities through financial and network pricing modeling, analysis and reporting. As you do, you'll discover the resources, backing and opportunities that you'd expect from a Fortune 7 leader.


The candidate will develop the provider network (physicians, hospitals, pharmacies, ancillary groups & facilities, etc.) yielding a geographically competitive, broad access, stable network that achieves objectives for unit cost performance and trend management and produces an affordable and predictable product for customers and business partners. Evaluate and negotiates contracts in compliance with company contract templates, reimbursement structure standards, and other key process controls. Establish and maintain strong business relationships with Hospital, Physician, Pharmacy, or Ancillary providers, and ensures the network composition includes an appropriate distribution of provider specialties. *Employees in jobs labeled with SCA must support a government Service Contract Act (SCA) agreement.


Primary Responsibilities:

  • Manage unit cost budgets, target setting, performance reporting and associated financial models
  • Apply network configuration and incentive-based payment models as appropriate to improve quality and efficiency
  • Lead the development of new concepts, technologies and products to meet emerging customer requirements
  • Direct cross-functional and/or industry-wide teams with segment-wide and/or enterprise-wide impact
  • Influence senior management decisions that impact business direction


Your leadership skills and drive to get things accomplished will be key to your success in this role. The end goal is to produce an affordable and predictable product for customers and business partners within new markets, so you will need to be able to lead us forward and help us develop provider networks with Accountable Care Organizations yielding a geographically competitive, broad access, stable network that achieves objectives for unit cost performance and trend management.


You'll be rewarded and recognized for your performance in an environment that will challenge you and give you clear direction on what it takes to succeed in your role as well as provide development for other roles you may be interested in.
