Changes Ahead For DE United Healthcare Policyholders

Posted: Updated:

DELAWARE – Parents and guardians of children in Delaware covered by United Healthcare, could soon find A.I. DuPont Children's Hospital out of network.

The agreement between the insurance company and Nemours Foundation, which includes the hospital and network pediatricians, is set to expire April 1, 2014. With negotiations not making much progress, state officials are urging Delawareans to make a coverage switch to continue access.

"A.I. DuPont is really a world class facility," said Delaware Lieutenant Governor Matt Denn. "Most parents want their kid to continue seeing the same doctor or doctors that have been treating them in the past."

The majority of people who are affected are children who receive Medicaid or CHIP benefits administered by United Healthcare. To retain in-network access to Nemours services, policyholders should call the Delaware Medicaid Health Benefit Manager at 1-800-996-9969 switch to DPCI by March 15.

If you have a United Healthcare insurance plan through an employer, you should contact your Human Resources department to discuss coverage options and legal rights to continued care.
