Share this post

IU Health announced today that a contract agreement has been reached with UnitedHealthcare retroactive to January 1, 2014, and providing uninterrupted coverage to an estimated 400-thousand Indiana patients. IU Health and UnitedHealthcare have been involved in ongoing negotiations and were unable to agree on a new contract before the existing contract expired on December 31, 2013. IU Health says they've been granting UnitedHealthcare patients a special ‘in-network’ status to help avoid disruption and encourage ongoing care with their physician while working toward a resolution with the Minneapolis-based provider. Local facilities include IU Health La Porte Hospital in La Porte and IU Health Starke Hospital in Knox.
“We thank our patients for their loyalty and patience,” said Dr. John C. Kohne, chief medical officer, Indiana University Health.  “While we are pleased to have reached an agreement with UnitedHealthcare, it’s unfortunate that our patients experienced any unnecessary stress or inconvenience.  We remain committed to offering Hoosiers the nationally recognized, affordable healthcare they deserve.”
