UnitedHealth looks to cut Landmark from network

April 23, 2014

WOONSOCKET – UnitedHealthcare of New England is seeking the Department of Health’s approval to cut Landmark Medical Center and 52 of its physicians from the medical insurer’s coverage network, a move that would affect thousands of northern Rhode Islanders who regularly use Landmark.
The request comes after United and Landmark, newly acquired by the California-based for-profit hospital chain Prime Healthcare Services, were unable to iron out a new contract when the hospital emerged from receivership last year.
Landmark President Richard Charest says the hospital’s position is that United’s reimbursement rates are unfairly low in comparison to what other hospitals are paid for the same procedures.
