Montefiore and UnitedHealthcare Have Reached An Agreement Effective December 1, 2021

Montefiore is back in network with UnitedHealthcare

We are pleased to announce that Montefiore Health System (MHS) and UnitedHealthcare have reached an agreement on a long-term contract that restores in-network access to all Montefiore Health System hospitals and healthcare providers effective December 1, 2021 for UnitedHealthcare and Oxford employer-sponsored plans, as well as UnitedHealthcare’s Medicare Dual Special Needs Plan.

Unfortunately, despite extensive discussions, Montefiore and UnitedHealthcare were not able to come to an agreement on in-network coverage for UnitedHealthcare’s Community Medicaid plan. Montefiore continues its commitment to provide care to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. Patients who remain covered by UnitedHealthcare’s Community Medicaid Plan will always have in-network access to emergent care provided in Montefiore’s emergency rooms.

This agreement restores in-network access to Montefiore’s 10 hospitals and more than 200 outpatient facilities throughout the Bronx, Westchester, Rockland and Orange counties.

You can, resume seeking in-network care, beginning December 1, at the following locations with no additional cost:

  • Montefiore Medical Center
  • Montefiore Mount Vernon
  • Montefiore New Rochelle
  • Montefiore Nyack
  • Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital
  • White Plains Hospital

We are humbled by your patience throughout this entire process and the continued honor to provide you with the high-quality care you deserve. Thank you. If you have any questions, please visit or call our patient information line at (855) 226-3071.
