Erlanger signs deal with UnitedHealthcare

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - Erlanger has signed a multi-year contract with UnitedHealthcare, which will allow participants with the insurance carrier to use in-network services at Erlanger's five-hospital system in Chattanooga.

Those enrolled in UnitedHealthcare's commercial and Medicare Advantage plans, and individuals enrolled in the state's TennCare program and in Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans will have access to all Erlanger facilities and physicians.

Expectant mothers and children enrolled in the TennCare program regain in-network access effective immediately, according to a news release.

The new contract also expands TennCare participation to give adults enrolled in the state's Medicaid program full access to all Erlanger facilities and physicians beginning March 1, 2015.  

“Erlanger values its new comprehensive relationship with UnitedHealthcare and the commitment both organizations are making to improve the health of our community,” said Kevin M. Spiegel, FACHE, President and CEO of the Erlanger Health System. “We appreciate the continued trust our patients have placed in us as their health care provider.”
