Good news for patients who carry UnitedHealthcare.

According to a statement released on Tuesday, Broward Health and UnitedHealthcare have reached a multi-year agreement that restores network access to Broward Health hospitals, facilities, and physicians for UnitedHealthcare members.

This includes those enrolled in UnitedHealthcare employer-sponsored, individual, Medicare Advantage, and Medicaid plans. The new agreement goes into effect on November 1, 2022.

Last April, after failing to reach an agreement, about 13,000 UnitedHealthcare members and tens of thousands of non-users lost Broward Health as an in-network option.

“This is a win for our patients, and we are pleased that we have reached an agreement that will ensure our community and residents have access to the care they need,” said Shane Strum, Broward Health’s president, and CEO. “As a safety net healthcare provider, Broward Health relies on fair and equitable reimbursement from our payer partners to ensure we can continue to provide the highest quality care to every patient who comes to us.”

According to the statement, Broward Health’s goal in working with UnitedHealthcare has always been about ensuring the health system and its caregivers can continue to meet the needs of its patients today and in the future.

“This new contract affirms how vital access to high-quality care is to the health of our community,” said Strum. “We thank patients, providers, caregivers, employers, and other leaders for their support and patience throughout this process.”
