United Health Group is Made of 2 Main Divisions: United Healthcare Insurance and Optum.
On It's Own, Optum Would Be One of the Largest Companies in America.

Optum Contains Many Companies:
1) Optum Rx - the Pharmacy Benefits Manager (PBM) for United Healthcare Insurance '
2) Optum Analytics
3) Optum Bank
4) The Advisory Board Company + Multiple Others
The Challenge for Optum is that They Have Hospital System Clients.
Optum Works with Those Hospital System Clients Make More Money, While at the Same Time, United Healthcare Insurance is Trying to Have Hospital Systems Make Less Money by Negotiating Discounts on Behalf of Their Employer Clients.
