IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR UHA PATIENTS

 

Dear Patient:

We understand that you may have received a notice from University Health Alliance (UHA) that it has changed our status from a “Participating Provider” to a “Non-Participating Provider”.  Please be advised that the change was made by UHA unilaterally and came as a surprise to me.

As you are aware, my companies and I have been on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19.  You, as my patient, have not been billed for any COVID-19 testing that we have billed UHA for.  However, there is a year-long ongoing dispute with UHA for payment of outbreak testing claims.  UHA has contended that any outbreak testing should be paid for by an employer and/or other sources. UHA’s position has left us with no alternative but to proceed with litigation and we have filed suit over the matter.

My medical providers and I remain committed to you, our patients.  Should you desire to continue to remain in our care, please contact UHA’s Health Care Services at (808) 532-4006 or 1 (800) 458-4600, extension 300.

If you have any questions, regarding the above, please contact 808-379-1512 or you may email our referral office at:  Referrals@pmghawaii.org.

Sincerely,
