UnitedHealth Group Makes $500,000 Donation for Louisiana Hurricane Relief

NEC member UnitedHealth Group recently announced a $500,000 donation to the Community Foundation of Southwest Louisiana. The donation will support Louisiana residents in rebuilding and recovering from the storm.

UnitedHealth Group has proactively taken steps to ensure the safety and health of its employees in the affected areas, including supporting evacuations and providing funds for recovery. Additionally, the company has shored up health plan participants’ access to care by carrying out early prescription refills, increasing access to telehealth, and opening a 24-hour emotional support helpline to those affected by the hurricane.

“We are deeply concerned for the people affected by Hurricane Laura, and we are committed to helping the people in these local Louisiana communities recover and rebuild,” said Dirk McMahon, chief executive officer of UnitedHealthcare. “Many of these communities are also dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, making this an especially challenging time for those who may have lost loved ones or been displaced as a result of the hurricane.”

The New England Council applauds UnitedHealth Group for their commitment to the safety and recovery of the people of Louisiana. Read more from the UnitedHealth Group press release.
