About UnitedHealth Group Incorporated

The UnitedHealth Group Incorporated was established in 1977 to operate as the holding company to Charter Med Incorporated. Richard Taylor Burke started Charter Med in 1974.

In addition, the company provides benchmarking tools for medical practitioners with an ultimate goal of improving the quality of their service. The company operates via four segments, each focused on specific needs within the healthcare market. Rapid growth saw UnitedHealth float its shares via an IPO on the New York Stock Exchange.
