UnitedHealthcare, Northeast Georgia Health split amid contract impasse

Gainesville-based Northeast Georgia Health System went out of network with UnitedHealthcare's employer-sponsored and individual plans after the two sides were unable to reach a new contract, UnitedHealthcare said in a May 1 news release. 

The split will affect about 12,000 Northeast Georgia Health System patients, radio station WABE reported May 2. 

Some patients may qualify to continue their care at in-network rates, including people pregnant or undergoing an active course of medical treatment, such as for cancer, and patients with newly diagnosed or relapsed cancer, according to the report.
