IU Health has been granting UnitedHealthcare patients a special ‘in-network’ status while working toward a resolution.

The new agreement confirms that IU Health physicians and facilities are again in-network providers for UnitedHealthcare insurance plans.

All services provided by IU Health as of January 1st will be billed as in-network.
