More than 50K may be without full coverage at Miami Valley Hospital

Published: Friday, April 28, 2017 @ 10:49 PM

As of midnight Sunday, more than 50,000 people in the Dayton area may not have in-network insurance coverage at Miami Valley Hospital.

UnitedHealthcare and Premier Health Network have not reached a new agreement for employer-sponsored and individual plans. The current contract expires April 30 for premier hospitals and facilities.

Premier and UnitedHealthcare extended its contract through Dec. 31 for those with Medicare Advantage plans. This includes about 7,000 members in the Dayton area, said Tony Marusic, communications director for UnitedHealthcare.

If an agreement for employer-sponsored plans is not reached in the coming weeks, Premier physicians also will be out of network beginning May 14. Also on May 14, both Premier hospitals and physicians would be out of network for UnitedHealthcare’s Medicaid plans.

Some members may be able to receive in-network coverage for a period of time if the contract expires, such as members who are pregnant or undergoing active treatment for a serious medical condition, such as cancer. 

In the event of an emergency, UnitedHealthcare said its members should go to the nearest hospital because emergency services are covered as an in-network benefit.
