Optum: Where health care and financial services converge

For more than 25 years, Optum has led the way in health account administration. More than simply provide an account, Optum focuses on the convergence of health care and financial services to help employees grow from an account holder to a long-term health saver. We believe that when your employees have money to pay for health care, they’ll make better decisions and will be healthier.

Health savings accounts from Optum BankSM, Member FDIC, include engaging and informative account tools and information — from pre-enrollment through enrollment and post-enrollment — to help employees understand the relationship between their health and wealth.

Optum research into health savings and spending

At Optum, we’re committed to educating and guiding employees on using their HSA wisely. Optum research shows there are five stages of health savings and spending, each with a variety of goals, mindsets and activities.

 

Optum can provide information, tools and support based on where each employee is in their individual journey across these five stages.
