UnitedHealthcare and UNC Health agree to long-term contract

In a major development for healthcare in North Carolina, UNC Health has recently signed a long-term agreement with UnitedHealthcare to ensure that thousands of patients can continue to receive treatment at their clinics and hospitals without any disruption. The previous contract was due to expire on April 1st, but the new agreement will cover patients under United’s commercial, Individual Exchange, and Medicare Advantage plans.

The news of the agreement has been met with relief by many patients who were worried about going out of network or having to find new providers for their care. Dr. Matt Ewend, chief clinical officer at UNC Health, stated that this new agreement will benefit patients across the state by avoiding increased costs and the stress of having to change providers. Negotiations between UNC Health and UnitedHealthcare began last year and a new deal was reached this week. This agreement follows a similar long-term contract recently announced with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina.

UNC Health is committed to communicating this news to their patients under UnitedHealthcare as soon as possible to reassure them that their UNC providers will remain the same. This is just one more way that UNC Health is working to provide quality care and maintain strong relationships with insurance providers for the benefit of their patients.
