UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH) announced today that Simon Stevens will

serve as executive vice president, UnitedHealth Group, with major

responsibilities in the areas of health care reform and global health

interests.

In his new role, which reports to Stephen J. Hemsley, chief executive

officer and president of UnitedHealth Group, Mr. Stevens will lead the

company’s strategic positioning for national health reform, helping

ensure its businesses are well positioned to be effective partners in

the changing marketplace and evolving government policy environment. He

will also establish and direct a UnitedHealth Center for Health Reform,

which will draw on thought leadership within the company and from

external experts and other resources to address how best to tackle the

leading health care challenges facing the U.S.

Stevens also has been appointed president of the company’s Global Health

interests to oversee the company’s current international business

opportunities.

Larry C. Renfro, most recently with Fidelity Investments, is joining

UnitedHealth Group and will assume Mr. Stevens’ position as chief

executive officer of Ovations. (A separate release has been issued

regarding Mr. Renfro’s appointment.)

Mr. Hemsley said, “I am grateful for Simon’s successful leadership of

Ovations and am delighted that he will now broaden his role and help

guide UnitedHealth Group’s active and constructive participation in

much-needed national health reform, while also leading our international

growth. We believe that in this new position Simon will be a great asset

to our company as we face a time of change and development; and he will

also be a sought after source of expertise and service for our nation.”

Since late 2006 Stevens has served as chief executive officer of

Ovations, UnitedHealth Group’s seniors health business and the nation’s

largest and most diversified Medicare health plan. Stevens’ executive

experience in health care spans twenty years of service, in hospitals,

primary care and as a payer, in the private and public sectors, both in

the U.S. and internationally.
