UnitedHealthcare will terminate its provider contract with Temple University Health System for its Medicaid managed care plan on February 1st if a new deal can’t be reached. Temple accepted with great regret UnitedHealthcare’s termination letter for the insurance company’s Medicaid product, a move Temple Health had to make to ensure it is able to continue to provide patients the high quality services that its patients and community expect from Temple Health. Temple providers are in-network for a number of other plans, including Independence’s Keystone First and Health Partners Plans, and UPMC for You, and Temple is focused on ensuring a smooth transition of care for the patients and families impacted by UnitedHealthcare’s decision.
