BJC, United reach agreement over coverage

By KWMU

St. Louis, MO. – The hundreds of thousands of people in the St. Louis region with United Healthcare will still get coverage at BJC Healthcare hospitals.

BJC and United reached an agreement Thursday to keep hospitals like Barnes-Jewish in the United network.

BJC had threatened to leave in August. That would have meant United customers would have had to pay more to go to those hospitals.
