Important Information About Our Relationship with Northwestern Medical Group

Our Commitment to the Chicago Community

We work hard each and every day on behalf of those we serve, to ensure UnitedHealthcare members have access to a broad network of physicians, hospitals and other health care professionals that provide affordable and high quality care.

Our negotiations with Northwestern Medical Group continue

Northwestern Medical Group’s (NMG) participation in UnitedHealthcare’s network continues through Dec. 31, 2018 for our employer-sponsored, individual and Medicare Advantage health plans.

We understand that the care NMG’s physicians provide in the community is not only important, but it’s personal to the community and we assure you we are making every effort to reach a successful resolution. However, while these types of negotiations are fairly common, they also need to strike the right balance – maintaining access to local doctors 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 Northwestern Medical Group for its physicians but in the meantime we have posted information on this website to ensure you have access to the resources you need.
