Desert Cardiology of Tucson
United Healthcare Contract Negotiations
United recently notified us they will terminate the contract with Northwest Healthcare, which includes Northwest Allied Physicians, effective May 1, 2017. Patients with United Healthcare should have recently received a letter from us with this information.
Medicaid, Medicare Advantage and commercial plans are affected by this termination. Tricare members are not affected. We continue to negotiate with United to come to a mutual agreement that will allow you to keep seeing your Northwest Allied Physicians provider.
We understand this will be challenging for you if the contract reaches termination. Please consider expressing your dissatisfaction with United's decision by contacting them directly at 800-985-2356 or by calling the number on your insurance card.
