St. Luke's, UnitedHealthcare go their separate ways
St. Luke's Health System of Kansas City will stop accepting insurance provided by UnitedHealthcare as of February. The separation comes after nearly a year and a half of trying to come to an agreement. Officials say, however, that a Medicare supplement plan that is administered by United, which insures about 20% of the Kansas City market, will not be affected.
