Optum's Logistics Health Inc. (LHI) has been awarded a U.S. Department of Defense contract to serve the health needs of members of the U.S. Armed Forces through the Reserve Health Readiness Program. LHI has supported the Reserve Health Readiness Program in this capacity since 2001, and in 2012 provided more than 1.5 million services to Armed Forces members and their families.
The Reserve Health Readiness Program is a Department of Defense program managed by the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Force Health Protection and Readiness. Through its work, LHI helps to ensure Armed Forces members are medically ready for deployment, and meets the health needs of Military members before, during and after deployment through its network of more than 25,000 care providers.
"It has been a deep honor for our people to serve the health needs of the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, and with this award we are grateful that we will be able to continue delivering on our commitment to them," said Larry Renfro, CEO of Optum.
