UnitedHealthcare, Providence reach deal

UnitedHealthcare and Renton, Wash.-based Providence Health have reached a multi-year deal to keep nearly 3 million beneficiaries in-network with the health system's physicians and facilities in California, the Eureka Times-Standard reported Nov. 22.

The agreement affects UnitedHealthcare members enrolled in employer-sponsored and individual commercial plans, as well as Medicare Advantage PPO and Group Retiree PPO plans, a spokesperson for the payer told the news outlet. 

The deal came days after Providence sent an email to patients informing them that the two-sides had been unable to reach an agreement and the contract would be terminated if one was not reached by Jan. 1.
