UAB Medicine and United Agreement Reached

We are pleased to announce that the UAB Health System and United Healthcare have reached a tentative agreement on a health insurance contract. This contract means UAB Medicine patients covered by a United Healthcare policy may continue to receive care from their UAB medical providers at all UAB Medicine facilities without disruption of services.

Those facilities include UAB Hospital; The Kirklin Clinic of UAB Hospital and all other UAB Medicine primary care, specialty care, and urgent care clinics; UA Health Services Foundation; UAB Callahan Eye Hospital; Medical West; and Baptist Health in Montgomery.

UAB and United have two weeks to finalize the tentative agreement. The new contract will be in effect for two years.

UAB Medicine is committed to our mission of providing the highest quality health care to the citizens of Alabama and beyond, and we are pleased to continue serving United Healthcare’s policy holders. As the flagship hospital for the state, we provide medical services that no other healthcare facility can provide, and we are committed to offering our services to everyone in the state of Alabama.

If you are a United Healthcare policy holder that had cancelled upcoming appointments, began the process of finding a new physician, or transferred your prescriptions to a new pharmacy, we sincerely apologize for your inconvenience and the stress this has caused. To reschedule your appointments or if you have additional questions, call the customer service numbers listed on the left.

Thank you for the confidence you have placed in us to care for you and/or your loved ones. We value all our patients and are glad that we can continue to serve you in the future.
