United Healthcare, Piedmont Reach Agreement


UnitedHealthcare and Piedmont Healthcare have reached a three-year agreement that will keep all Piedmont Healthcare hospitals and physicians in UnitedHealthcare’s network for commercial health plans, including the plan that covers North Georgia Conference HealthFlex participants.

The new contract is retroactive to July 1, 2016, ensuring members enrolled in UnitedHealthcare employer-sponsored plans do not experience any interruption in their in-network benefits coverage for services received at Piedmont. The agreement includes the 1,400 physicians in the Piedmont Clinic and all six Piedmont hospitals – Piedmont Atlanta, Piedmont Fayette, Piedmont Mountainside, Piedmont Newnan, Piedmont Henry, and adding Piedmont Newton to this relationship.
