SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) — The country’s largest health benefits and services company will join Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder to make a jobs-related announcement.

UnitedHealth Group CEO Stephen Hemsley and Snyder on Tuesday afternoon are planning to discuss the future of subsidiary Optum in the state. Optum has offices in the Detroit suburb of Southfield and is described as an information and technology-enabled health services business with more than 50,000 employees worldwide.

UnitedHealth Group is based in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Optum says it delivers “intelligent, integrated solutions” to help modernize the health system. One of its newer functions is helping government officials fix online state health insurance marketplaces unveiled under the federal health care law.
