After months of discussions with United Healthcare, we have not been able to reach a new agreement. As of May 11, 2017, United Healthcare will consider hospital-based services and provider (physician) services at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital as out-of-network.
There are many different plans offered by United Healthcare. Some plans have higher deductibles and/or copay for out-of-network services. Other plans do not provide any coverage for out-of-network services. We recommend that you look at your health plan description of benefits or call United to determine how out-of-network services are handled on your particular plan. If the insurance is provided through an employer, you can also talk to their benefits department
