UnitedHealthcare did not renew its in-network contract with Envision Healthcare for 2021, according to a Dec. 31 news release.

The decision went into effect Jan. 1, the release said. It stemmed from disagreements on reimbursement rates. Envision claims it took rate reductions in previous years; however, a UnitedHealthcare spokesperson told Becker's Hospital Review that Envision was "driving up the cost of care" for patients.

The split won't affect Amsurg, according to the company.
