BALTIMORE — The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) today recognized United Health Group (UHG) with the Partnership for Growth award on the final day of the National Postal Forum (NPF), the country’s premier mailing and shipping conference. The Partnership for Growth award is given annually at NPF to recognize a strong mailing industry contributor that drives innovation and growth using USPS.
UHG was selected to receive this year’s Partnership for Growth Award by Postmaster General and CEO Megan J. Brennan with concurrence of the USPS Executive Leadership Team. UHG is being recognized for continuously working with the Postal Service to ensure it reaches its customers using new and innovative technologies that increase the value of the mail.
“Congratulations to United Health Group on winning this award,” said Postmaster General Brennan. “We are pleased to support their innovative approach to both mailing and shipping with a variety of products and services. Our strategic partnership has resulted in better experiences for UHG and Postal Service customers and employees.”
Working with the Postal Service, UHG sends more than 1 billion pieces of mail to its members and providers annually. The company uses the mail to engage members, increasing their knowledge and education. It also uses the mail as a strong component of its employee wellness campaign.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
