Belleville Memorial Hospital takes on nation's largest insurer

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, May 20, 2013

Belleville Memorial Hospital and UnitedHealthcare are moving toward a showdown next month over hospital and physician reimbursement rates. If an agreement cannot be struck, Memorial and its physicians group will no longer be in the network of the nation's largest insurer. Such contract disputes are becoming increasingly common as insurers and health providers vie for scarce health care dollars in a sluggish economy. The contract talks between Memorial and UnitedHealthcare have simmered for the last couple of years, but they turned potentially volatile in recent days as the two sides began to squabble publicly.
