Why is UHC Calling?

It may seem unusual, but the next time your phone's caller ID reads "UnitedHealthcare," there'sa  good chance it's an offer to connect you with information to help you manage or improve your health.  These are not sales calls, rather, these calls are used to extend invitations to members including wellness coaching, disease management and pregnancy resources.
