We like it when we can educate the big incumbents in the health care arena. So when we see UnitedHealthcare spending so much time here, it makes us happy. Some of their searches: CPT vs. DRG, affordable psychotherapy, pulmonary compliance study, our “About” page, our “Team” page, a blog post about Massachusetts and Maryland as different examples of health care ecosystems, anesthesia overcharges. Also, from the Philippines outpost of UnitedHealthcare, “How much does a vasectomy cost, and is it covered?”
Hey UnitedHealthcare, let us know if there’s anything else we can do for you!
