Thompson heads the health benefits unit of UnitedHealth Group. He was named to the position in April 2021. Thompson served as CEO of UnitedHealthcare government programs, including the Medicare, retirement, community and state businesses serving the needs of seniors and Medicaid beneficiaries. Other leadership positions include chief financial officer and financial controller. Before joining UnitedHealth Group, Thompson was a CPA and manager of transaction advisory services at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Thompson speaks: “People receive needed care when they’re at the doctor’s office or inside a clinic or hospital, but they often lack the support, coordination and guidance they need in navigating the system. Health navigators step into those moments of vulnerability and uncertainty to provide personal, compassionate guidance to the people we serve.”
