I just got this email today:

UnitedHealthCare Community Plan
Dear Patient/Guarantor,

We are reaching out to you because our records indicate that you currently have UnitedHealthcare Community Plan insurance coverage - or that you are the guarantor of a child with that coverage -- and that you or your child have received or are scheduled to receive healthcare services with one of our physicians. Please note that effective September 1, 2019, all NYU Langone Health physicians and hospitals will be out of network with UnitedHealthcare Community Plan.

While you may receive a letter from UnitedHealthcare Community Plan stating that you/your child will need to change your current physician(s) and preferred hospital, this is not the case for most patients. By selecting one of the other plans with which NYU Langone Health participates, your/your child's current care will not be disrupted and you can continue to access NYU Langone Health physicians and hospitals.

NYU Langone Health is pleased to accept the following plans, which provide the same benefits as UnitedHealthcare Community Plan:

- Empire BlueCross BlueShield HealthPlus
- Healthfirst
- Fidelis Care
- EmblemHealth (HIP)

To change coverage for Medicaid and Child Health Plus beneficiaries, please contact New York Medicaid Choice:
Monday - Friday: 8:30 am to 8 pm
Saturday: 10 am to 6 pm

To change coverage for Essential plans, please contact the New York State of Health Official Health Plan Marketplace:

By Phone:
Monday - Friday 8 am to 8 pm
Saturday 9 am to 1 pm


Physician participation may vary by plan. For more information, please call our physician referral service at 646-929-7800 or visit nyulangone.org/doctors .

Thank you,
NYU Langone Health

I have HealthFirst and I like it better than United anyway. They don't require referrals or prior authorization for most of the things other plans do. If a doctor you were already seeing changes networks then they let you change plans in middle of the year.
