After almost a year of lawsuits, op-eds and accusations of over-billing and “tactics that fuel conflict,” Nashville-based Envision Healthcare and UnitedHealthcare have reached a compromise. On Tuesday, the two companies announced they have agreed to a contract extension that will allow the Minneapolis-based health insurer to cover services from Envision physicians, according to a news release. Nashville-based Envision was the city’s third-largest publicly traded health care company, with $7.8 billion of revenue in 2017, before it was sold to private-equity firm KKR for $9.9 billion earlier this year.
After hitting records in September, the S&P 500 has lost all gains for the year to hold just under the flat line. Ari Wald, head of technical analysis at Oppenheimer, said one corner of the market still works in both good times and bad. The S&P 500's managed health-care sub-industry has surged so far this year.
Simply put, the stocks that were leading the broad market higher as recently as September suffered a painful about-face when October's correction came knocking. One of the stocks that's working right now is UnitedHealth Group Inc. The uptrend in UnitedHealth has been pretty unmistakable this year.
UnitedHealthcare announced today that it has agreed to extend its nationwide contract with Envision Healthcare. The agreement ensures that all UnitedHealthcare plan participants will have in-network access to Envision’s hospital-based services. UnitedHealthcare is dedicated to helping people live healthier lives and making the health system work better for everyone by simplifying the health care experience, meeting consumer health and wellness needs, and sustaining trusted relationships with care providers.
UnitedHealthcare announced that it will significantly expand its Navigate4Me program to bring the benefits of personalized, holistic care to more people enrolled in its Medicare Advantage plans. UnitedHealthcare launched the program in fall 2017 for people enrolled in its Medicare Advantage plans who are facing complex health issues such as diabetes, congestive heart failure or multiple chronic conditions.
