BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The University of Vermont Health Network and health insurance company UnitedHealthcare have agreed to a tentative deal to extend patient access to UVMHN through April 30.

Both parties have been going back and forth for months to renew an agreement that determines how much UVM network hospitals charge for various patient procedures.

During the 30 days, the health network will decide whether or not to agree to the terms. If they sign, it’s set for one year. If they don’t, about 2,600 people and their families with that insurance will be affected.
