While these types of negotiations are fairly common, they also need to strike the right balance – maintaining access to local doctors and hospitals you’re familiar with, while still being able to provide you and your employer with affordable health insurance coverage.

We assure you we are making every effort to renew our relationship with DLP for the hospitals and physicians affected by this negotiation, but in the meantime we have posted information on this website to ensure you are prepared in the event DLP does not continue its participation in UnitedHealthcare’s employer-sponsored and Medicare Advantage health plans.
