Update on Our Participation with UnitedHealthcare in Arizona.

For more than a decade we have been privileged to provide great care to babies, expectant moms and kids throughout Arizona through the UnitedHealthcare network. Our participation agreements with UnitedHealthcare of Arizona and United Community Plan of Arizona (collectively, “UnitedHealthcare”) were set to expire on June 30, 2015 and we have been in discussions with them on new agreements for our practices. Regrettably, we were unable to reach agreement with UnitedHealthcare on new agreements for our practices as of June 30, 2015.  As a result, our practices, which include over 200 health care providers in Arizona, will no longer be participating (in-network) with UnitedHealthcare health plans beginning July 1, 2015.

We are available to help with scheduling and billing questions, and we may have some options to assist you in making it easier to obtain the care you need. For scheduling or billing questions, please call your local physician’s office.

We greatly appreciate the patience and support of our patients and referring physicians. We will continue our discussions with UnitedHealthcare and hope to resolve our contractual  issues soon and return to the UnitedHealthcare provider networks.  If you have questions, or want to contact UnitedHealthcare and share with them how important it is to have access to your physician, please refer to the Contact Us page on this site.
