As reported recently by the Charlotte Observer, the contract between United Healthcare (UHC) and Carolinas Healthcare system (CHC) is set to expire on February 28, 2015. CHC owns 12 hospitals and employs thousands of doctors and other medical professionals in the greater Charlotte metro area, and surrounding counties. These negotiations could impact approximately 80,000 North Carolina residents insured by United Healthcare in the Charlotte metro area, and thousands more residents in rural areas who may seek care at CHC.
Our take on the issue? These contract negotiations frequently get wrapped up at the last minute possible, as both sides play games of brinksmanship to achieve the desire outcome. Stay tuned to NChealthconnector.org for updates!
