ALMH becomes network provider for United Healthcare          Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 1, 2006]  Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital has become a network provider for United Healthcare. ALMH currently participates in numerous other health insurance plans.

The addition of United Healthcare allows services provided for Caterpillar employees or retirees and their families to be covered at the in-network rate.

Health insurance companies typically pay a higher percentage of a hospital or doctor's office bill when an in-network provider is used.

Health care consumers should understand in advance what charges from which providers are covered at the maximum level and which are not. Insurance provider arrangements can change frequently. Consumers should contact their insurance company prior to receiving planned health care services like surgery, diagnostic imaging, therapy treatments or giving birth.

Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital is a community-based general hospital. ALMH is a 12-year affiliate of the Memorial Health System of Springfield, whose vision is to be the leading health care system that people choose over all others. For more information on the services provided, visit
