Wespath and the North Georgia Conference Benefits Office are aware that after multiple attempts at negotiation, United Healthcare and Northeast Georgia Health System have not been able to reach a contract agreement. As a result, this hospital system and employed physicians are now out of network for HealthFlex participants as of May 1, 2023.
Our members who are in active care for critical illnesses, pregnancy, etc, can apply for continuity of care. That information can be found here: https://www.nghs.com/wp-
United Healthcare is offering updates on its website at https://www.uhc.com/nghs/
The North Georgia Conference Benefits Office is in steady communication with Wespath and will continue to share information as its available.
