UnitedHealthcare, UVM Health strike last-minute deal

UnitedHealthcare and Burlington-based University of Vermont Health Network reached a new contract just days before its current deal was set to expire, VTDigger reported Feb. 21. 

The agreement will allow patients covered by UnitedHealthcare to continue receiving in-network care at UVM Health's facilities in Vermont and northern New York until April 2026, according to the report. The current contract was set to end March 1 if no deal was agreed upon. 

About 2,660 residents receive coverage through UnitedHealthcare, but it is unclear how many other family members are insured on those plans, a UVM Health spokesperson told the outlet.
