Published on Sunday, October 16, 2016

Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System and UnitedHealthcare have reached a two-year agreement that will keep all SRHS hospitals and physicians in UHC’s network for commercial and Medicare Advantage health plans.

The new contract was effective Oct. 15 ensuring members enrolled in UHC employer-sponsored plans do not experience any interruption in their in-network benefits coverage for services received at SRHS hospitals or physicians.

The agreement includes 350 physicians in the Medical Group of the Carolinas and all four SRHS hospitals, and Ellen Sagar Skilled Nursing Center. The new contract also establishes a new agreement between the parties for Medicare Advantage plans.

“We appreciate our relationship with UnitedHealthcare and look forward to working with them in future efforts to bring greater value to the upstate community,” said Paul Butler, senior vice president of payor strategy for SRHS.
