Rutherford Regional Health System Reaches Agreement with UnitedHealthcare

UnitedHealthcare-insured patients will again have “in-network” access to hospital* and employed physician* services

Rutherford Regional Health System is pleased to announce  a new agreement with UnitedHealthcare that reinstates “in-network” status for hospital* and employed physician* services. This is a win for patients who deserve access to quality healthcare at home.

With this new agreement, our hospital* and employed physician* services will be back  “in-network” with UnitedHealthcare. Patients with UnitedHealthcare insurance plans will have “in-network” access to care beginning:

  • April 25 for hospital services; and
  • May 1 for employed physician services.

The agreement includes both commercial and Medicare Advantage insurance plans.

The new contract gives RRHS the ability to continue reinvesting in patient care by recruiting new physicians and caregivers and enhancing the services they provide.
