As of March 1,2019 United Healthcare (UHC) and Tennova hospitals failed to reach an agreement. UHC Medicare Advantage policyholders will still be able to use Tennova emergency services and Tennova physicians.
Non-emergency inpatient and outpatient care at the affected Tennova hospitals will be treated as out of network according to Becker Hospital Review.
Medicare beneficiaries who have original Medicare and a supplement plan are not affected. Original Medicare does not have managed care networks. Beneficiaries are free to use any doctor or hospital without penalty.
