North Mississippi Health Services (NMHS) and UnitedHealthcare (UHC) have renewed their in-network relationship for employer-sponsored and individual plans, as well as the State’s MississippiCAN and CHIP Medicaid programs. The latest three-year agreement ensures UnitedHealthcare plan participants will have uninterrupted access to NMHS facilities, physicians and clinic locations. This resolute the outstanding queries about past claims.
Shane Spees, North Mississippi Health Services president and CEO, said: “We’re glad the dispute is resolved and behind us now. The silver lining of our dispute is that each of us has learned much about the other’s agency through the experience, all of which has led to a strengthened relationship between our agencies and a clear, common aim going forward – to ensure access to care of the greatest quality and efficiency. The renewed relationship between UHC and North Mississippi Health Services will further support NMHS’ mission to continuously make better the health of the people in our region.”
NMHS serves more than 730,000 individuals in select areas of Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee with headquarters in Tupelo. In over 135 locations, NMHS gives access to care in 50 medical specialties, involving, but not limited to: cardiology, cancer treatment, neonatology, neurosurgery, pulmonology, physical rehabilitation, chemical dependency and other specialized surgeries.
“North Mississippi Health Services is a significant part of the community,” claimed Joe Ochipinti, CEO of UnitedHealthcare’s commercial health plan in Mississippi. “I acknowledge that our 2 organizations were capable to come together and reach a solution that will maintain our longstanding relationship and keep our concetration on supporting the health care requirements of the patients we collectively serve.”
In Mississippi, UnitedHealthcare serves more than 600,000 people enrolled in individual, employer-sponsored and Medicaid health policies, with a network of over 100 hospitals and more than 9,600 physicians and other care providers statewide.
