Envision Healthcare and UnitedHealthcare have agreed to a contract extension for care provided by Envision's hospital-based clinicians for all UnitedHealthcare plan participants.
Envision is a national leader in physician services, with more than 25,000 clinicians in 45 states and the District of Columbia specializing in anesthesia, pain management, emergency medicine, hospital medicine, radiology, obstetrics, neonatology, trauma surgery and urgent care.
"We are pleased to continue our long-term relationship with UnitedHealthcare by successfully extending our agreement to ensure patients have in-network access to Envision Healthcare hospital-based clinicians," said Christopher A. Holden, President and Chief Executive Officer of Envision Healthcare. "We believe this is an opportunity for clinicians and payors to work together to make progress toward a more effective healthcare system."
In February 2017, Envision Healthcare announced its in-network strategy. Envision's goal is to be in-network with as many insurers as possible. Currently, more than 90 percent of Envision's business comes from treating patients who are in-network.
