As you may know there is an ongoing contract dispute between United Healthcare Insurance and the BayCare Health System, which includes many area hospitals, doctors offices, and specialized care centers. As of this email, the contract between United and BayCare has expired and it is not known if or when BayCare may accept United insurance again. We have received inquiries from concerned patients so we wanted to assure you that Pediatric Health Care Alliance is not affected. Our practice is independently owned by our physicians and we have our own contracts with the insurance plans we accept, including United. If you know of anyone with United Healthcare Insurance who is in need of a pediatrician, we are accepting new patients* and have instructed our sites to be as accommodating as possible to families affected by this situation. *Due to a limited panel which is currently full, we are not able to accept new patients on the United M Plus insurance plan. All other United plans are accepted.
