Today we learned that United Health Care has dropped the biggest gastroenterology group in the Dayton, Ohio area from their provider list. During the last two weeks, we have read about thousands of physicians nationwide being dropped by United, which has a huge deal with AARP. Who is next?
Should we anticipate the frustrations coming from our patients who are followed by that GI group somehow? Should we assume that United will drop us, too? Should we notify our patients that we are concerned about United Health Care?
The walls are starting to crumble. Duck!
