OU Health and UnitedHealthcare Come to an Agreement

As of the end of the day, Friday, August 12, 2022, OU Health and UnitedHealthcare (UHC) have come to a resolution. The two organizations had been negotiating their contract since November of 2021.

“With so many of our services not available anywhere else in the state, we are so pleased to be able to continue to care for our UHC-insured patients, so they can continue to receive services like cancer treatment or comprehensive children’s care,” said Richard Lofgren, M.D., OU Health president and CEO.

UnitedHealthcare and OU Health have reached a multi-year agreement that restores network access to OU Health’s hospitals and facilities for people enrolled in UnitedHealthcare employer-sponsored, individual and Medicare Advantage plans, effective immediately.

“Throughout this time, our focus and commitment to patient care and being an institution that champions the health of our state hasn’t changed,” Lofgren said. “We are extremely pleased to be able to reinstate and continue our partnership with UHC, and together, we will make a difference in the lives of Oklahomans.”
