UnitedHealthcare and SUNY Upstate University Hospital agree to multi-year contract

UnitedHealthcare and SUNY have agreed to a new multi-year contract that ensures people enrolled in the following plans have continued access to SUNY Upstate University Hospital without any disruption:

  • Medicare Advantage
  • UnitedHealthcare Community Plan, including our Dual Special Needs Plan (DSNP)
  • Employer-sponsored and individual plans
  • Veteran Affairs Community Care Network (VACCN)

As a reminder, this negotiation did not impact our contract with Upstate University Medical Associates at Syracuse, the medical faculty practice affiliated with the hospital. Those physicians also continue to remain in our network.

We thank the people and employers we serve throughout the Syracuse area and surrounding communities for their patience throughout this process. We are honored to continue supporting the New Yorkers who depend on us for access to quality and affordable health care.
