About Universal American
Universal American has been on the cutting edge of healthcare for over two decades, pioneering innovative collaborations between patients, doctors and our company that produce healthy outcomes for all. We call this A Healthy Collaboration®.
We have built our business model around the concept that Primary Care Physicians are in the best position to drive significant improvements in the cost and quality of healthcare. Our job is to enable them by providing a structure that offers appropriate incentives for such improvements and actionable information that helps them achieve these goals. This concept underlies our long term success in serving the needs of people with Medicare and/or Medicaid.
Our unique and highly entrepreneurial approach also generates healthy financial outcomes. We are a publicly-traded healthcare company listed on the New York Stock Exchange with annual revenues of more than $2 billion and nearly 2,000 employees (NYSE: UAM).
