New patients

Welcome and thank you for trusting Optum with your care. Our goal is to make your health care journey easier and more personalized. 


Better care in 3 simple steps

At Optum, our focus is on you, from offering the care you want and need to helping you make the right decisions for better health. And getting started is easy. 

Step 1: Schedule an appointment

Whether you're new to Optum or a current patient, it's important to see your doctor or a care team member at least once a year. It's a smart, simple way to stay healthy, go over needed tests, catch problems early and create a care plan based on your needs.

Step 3: Start your care journey

Whether you're as healthy as can be or if you have conditions that need ongoing attention — like asthma, diabetes or heart disease — we're here for you. We'll help you get the care you need and connect you to specialists who are right for you.
