Medicare Advantage Terminations:
What Can You Do?

The Missouri State Medical Association (MSMA) learned that a large number of physicians have received letters from UnitedHealthcare (United) terminating them from United’s Medicare Advantage network. MSMA is working on a number of fronts to reverse or mitigate United’s decision to reduce its network, but until then here are some things you might consider doing if you are among the physicians who received one of these termination notices.
