Ci­tyMD reaches agree­ment with Unit­edHealth­care

Modern Healthcare - - Regional News -

New York-based Ci­tyMD, a fast-grow­ing ur­gent-care chain, has reached a con­tract to re­main in the net­work of Unit­edHealth­care, the coun­try’s largest health insurer, just be­fore the com­pa­nies’ agree­ment was set to ex­pire at the end of last year.

If a deal had not been reached, mem­bers of Unit­edHealth­care and its sub­sidiary Ox­ford Health Plans would have faced higher charges when seek­ing care at one of Ci­tyMD’s lo­ca­tions.

A let­ter dated Nov. 26 warned mem­bers that they might need to seek other providers. Ci­tyMD has more than 120 lo­ca­tions in New York, New Jer­sey and Wash­ing­ton, D.C. In Man­hat­tan, the ur­gent-care chain dots the map like sub­way stops, with 22 clin­ics. Pri­vate-eq­uity firm War­burg Pin­cus ac­quired a ma­jor­ity stake in Ci­tyMD for an undis­closed price in 2017.
