There is still apparently no agreement to restore the network relationship between United Healthcare (UHC) and Montefiore Health System. There is no indication that negotiations are occurring at this point and thousands of Bronx residents have effectively lost their access to healthcare. UNHP and FBHC have sent a letter to NYS DOH and DFS requesting their intervention.
The UNHP Northwest Bronx Resource Center (NWBRC) is committed to bringing needed resources to our Bronx community. That commitment is renewed as we face this ongoing COVID-19 crisis. We know people need information about health, food, financial, and housing resources at this time.
On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the third and largest COVID-19 relief package since the pandemic, known as American Rescue Plan into effect. While further guidance is needed - there are immediate benefits for many Bronx residents and families!
