As part of the real estate optimization initiative as described in Note 5. Property, Software and Equipment, the Company vacated and abandoned various domestic leased properties. As a result, the Company assessed the ROU assets for impairment. The Company engaged a third-party real estate specialist to determine the recoverability of the leased properties. The valuation primarily considered comparable leased properties in each market and the assessment of potential future rental income that could be generated by the ROU assets.

As a result of the optimization, the Company recognized $53 million and $574 million of ROU asset impairments in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively, primarily related to the Managed Care segment. The remainder of the $1,574 million charge was recorded within Property, Software and Equipment, refer to Note 5. Property, Software and Equipment.

As of September 30, 2022, the weighted average remaining lease term for the Company was 20.1 years. The lease liabilities as of September 30, 2022 reflect a weighted average discount rate of 5.6%.
