Mayo Clinic Joins the United Healthcare Network
Mayo Clinic has announced a new network relationship with UnitedHealthcare, giving UnitedHealthcare commercial plan customers in-network access to Mayo Clinic physicians and hospitals beginning Nov. 1, 2010.
The new network relationship covers all Mayo group practices and hospitals in Jacksonville, Fla., Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., and Rochester, Minn.
“This national agreement with UnitedHealthcare will allow even more people to experience Mayo Clinic,” says John Noseworthy, M.D., Mayo Clinic president and CEO. “Our patients tell us they come to Mayo for our team approach to health care, our ability to find answers and the peace of mind they have knowing that they receive care from many leading experts in their fields. We welcome the opportunity to serve UnitedHealthcare’s commercial plan participants.”
“Mayo Clinic is nationally recognized for delivering quality health care services,” says Michael O’Boyle, president, UnitedHealth Networks. “We look forward to working together to provide UnitedHealthcare customers access to the outstanding services provided by the physicians associated with Mayo Clinic’s three campuses across the United States.”
Mayo Clinic works with UnitedHealthcare and many other insurance companies and is an in-network provider for millions of people. In most cases, Mayo Clinic doesn’t require a physician referral. In fact, more than 8 out of every 10 patients come to Mayo Clinic on their own, without a referral from another physician.
