As of January 1, 2021, United Healthcare has dropped White Plains Hospital, White Plains Hospital Physician Associates and Scarsdale Medical Group from its network, subjecting our patients to higher out-of-pocket costs when they receive care. Despite our best efforts to negotiate in good faith since July to prevent this from impacting our patients, United has done little to try to reach a fair agreement.
WE NEED YOUR HELP.
For our patients who have been impacted, we understand your frustration and we are frustrated too. Our sole priority is to care for our patients and we value the relationships we have with you. The same cannot be said for United who is looking to put profits over people. Last year, in the midst of a global pandemic, they made more than $22B in profits. It is wrong to keep patients from their trusted doctors and Hospital, especially during a pandemic.
- SWITCH YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE
Let United know the company’s actions during a pandemic is unacceptable. Ask your HR Manager to provide another insurance option and share how important it is for you to be able to get care from the doctors you trust at White Plains Hospital, White Plains Hospital Physician Associates and Scarsdale Medical Group. You can customize this letter to send to your HR Manager encouraging them to switch.
