Piedmont Healthcare has resolved a contract dispute with a major insurer that had left many patients “out of network” at its facilities, including its Buckhead flagship Piedmont Hospital.

The new three-year contract with insurer UnitedHealthcare is retroactive to July 1, the previous contract’s end date, so no costs will go uncovered, according to Georgia Health News.
