Well-capitalized and highly entrepreneurial, Universal American has been on the cutting edge of healthcare for nearly 20 years. We are a publicly-traded healthcare company listed on the New York Stock Exchange with annual revenues of more than $2 billion and more than 2,000 employees nationwide. Through our family of healthcare companies, we provide health benefits to people covered by Medicare and/or Medicaid in more than 30 states. We offer private Medicare Advantage plans to people with Medicare and currently serve approximately 135,000 members. We are also the sole provider of Medicaid behavioral health services in Puerto Rico, serving nearly 1.5 million members and operating 18 clinics.
We also are launching new businesses that take advantage of the exciting opportunities brought about by healthcare reform and the growing role for private companies in Medicare and Medicaid programs. For example, we were one of the first companies to partner with doctors and other healthcare professionals in establishing Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) that serve people with Original Medicare and currently have a total of 31 ACOs in thirteen states serving more than 320,000 members.
We believe the opportunities are immense today to grow as a company by improving healthcare for patients, doctors, businesses and government. Our vision is simple: To promote better care and outcomes for patients, meet the challenge of rising healthcare costs, and align the incentives of doctors, patients and our company so that we are all working towards the same end: keeping patients in the best possible health while making healthcare more effective and affordable.
