Northwestern Medical Group and UnitedHealthcare Renew Network Relationship
We're pleased to announce that UnitedHealthcare has reached a new multi-year agreement with Northwestern Medical Group, maintaining in-network access for UnitedHealthcare's employer-sponsored commercial benefit plans and Medicare Advantage health plans to the approximate 1,700 Northwestern Medical Group physicians, including its nearly 200 primary care physicians.
This renewed relationship continues to provide UnitedHealthcare plan participants network access to the entire Northwestern Medicine system, along with adding Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Northwestern Medical Group facilities and physicians to UnitedHealthcare’s Core and Navigate products, effective Jan. 1, 2019.
We appreciate our relationship with Northwestern and recognize the important role they play as a local provider of health care services. We’d like to thank our customers and members for their support and patience throughout this process and are honored to continue supporting the more than 1.5 million individuals across Illinois who depend on us for access to quality, affordable health care.
UnitedHealthcare members who have questions are encouraged to contact us by calling the number on your health plan ID card.
