Description

There comes a point when you have developed your perspective and are ready to and start leading and guiding. If that’s where you are today, let’s talk about where you can be tomorrow with our leading, global health care organization. Provider networks across the health care system are becoming more efficient and effective everyday thanks to companies like UnitedHealth Group and people like you. Here’s an opportunity to put your expertise to work in new ways as you help strike the balance between health care costs and resources. In this consultative role, you’ll ensure that healthcare contracts are priced accurately and fairly for all involved. As you do, you’ll discover the resources, backing and opportunities that you’d expect from a Fortune 7 leader.

You’ll enjoy the flexibility to telecommute* from anywhere within the U.S. as you take on some tough challenges.
Primary Responsibilities:
  • Anticipate customer needs and proactively develop solutions to meet them
  • Support and validate provider network contracting and unit cost management
  • Conduct financial and network pricing modeling, analysis and reporting
  • Perform unit cost and contract valuation analysis in support of network contracting negotiations and unit cost management strategies
  • Manage unit cost budgets, target setting, performance reporting and associated financial models
  • Review work performed by others and recommend improvements
  • Create solutions with unfamiliar information and without typical tools -‘out of the box’ thinking
In this role, it is all about creativity, challenge, and complexity. You’ll be expected to help accurately and effectively price the network. It’s challenging because you need to be creative in your approach to the analytics behind the contract in order to properly utilize resources, build the data and price the network accurately. In addition this is a visible role with the need to evaluate and influence. Active leading of discussions including presenting perspectives and opinions to senior management will be essential.

You’ll be rewarded and recognized for your performance in an environment that will challenge you and give you clear direction on what it takes to succeed in your role as well as provide development for other roles you may be interested in.
