Marlon D. Cush Profile Image

I help people live healthier lives and make the healthcare system work better by partnering across disciplines and functions to solve complex global benefits and assistance issues. As a Senior Associate General Counsel within UnitedHealth Group's benefits arm, I support the commercial activities of UnitedHealthcare Global and have deep experience in managing legal issues relating to expatriate and business travel insurance, medical evacuation and assistance, provider network access, claims management and administrative services.

Before joining UnitedHealth Group, I was in private practice in the Minneapolis office of Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, where I focused on corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, and represented public and private companies in a variety of commercial transactions and general corporate issues. I was also involved with the firm’s Indian Finance practice which represents tribes, developers, lenders and underwriters in securities offerings and financing transactions for gaming, hotel, and entertainment facilities. Before that and law school, I held financial analyst and claims examiner roles within TIAA-CREF and MassMutual.

When I am not at work or home with my family, I serve as a member of the board of directors of BreakThrough Twin Cities, an educational nonprofit that prepares under-resourced students for college success and cultivates the next generation of educators, and as a mentor, sponsor, representative and former board member of Diversity in Practice, a nonprofit association comprised of the leading Twin-Cities legal employers with a single mission: to attract, recruit, advance, and retain attorneys of color in and to the Twin Cities legal community.
