ALL UnitedHealthcare patients still have access to ALL emergency services in ALL of our nation’s emergency rooms. Additionally, TeamHealth’s affiliated physicians WILL NOT balance bill UnitedHealthcare patients who come to one of the emergency departments we staff. Patients will only be responsible for their co-payment, coinsurance and deductible.
We care about patients and believe all patients should have access to essential emergency services. Our issue with UnitedHealthcare is over fair reimbursement for emergency services. TeamHealth’s physicians will not put the families we serve in the middle of this dispute.
