Unlike other anesthesia providers in Colorado, USAP clinicians’ special training makes expert care available to patients undergoing organ transplants, high-risk pregnancy, cardiac procedures, trauma, pediatrics and other critical needs. We are proud to cover a disproportionate number of these complex cases.
Ask why UHC is the only insurance company not contracted with the hospital’s anesthesia professionals and why UHC may be increasing your financial obligation. Bring our sample letter (below) to your HR department.
This will allow USAP to appeal your claim and request fair payment from UHC. You should not be held responsible for higher out-of-pocket costs
Contact the member phone number on your health plan ID card and request for your claim to be treated as in-network. Request an updated Explanation of Benefits (EOB) that confirms you are treated as in-network. The EOB will show any costs for which you are responsible as if the services were from an in-network provider.
