UnitedHealthCare has expanded its broad national network to include the U.S. Virgin Islands by signing agreements with V.I. Equicare and the Schneider Regional Medical Center.

With this agreement, nearly 3,000 UnitedHealthcare commercial health plan customers who reside in the U.S. Virgin Islands now have in-network access to a broad range of quality health care services. This network expansion also increases access to accredited, in-network health care providers beyond the continental U.S. at a time when consumers are increasingly in need of global access to health care.

“The Virgin Islands are significant to UnitedHealthcare, and we believe that individuals enrolled in our health plans as well as local businesses will welcome these new relationships with V.I. Equicare and Schneider Regional Medical Center,” said Dan Rosenthal, CEO for UnitedHealthcare’s Virgin Islands business. “These agreements demonstrate our shared commitment to providing the people of the Virgin Islands with access to quality, cost-effective health care services.”

V.I. Equicare is the largest Preferred Provider Organization in the U.S. Virgin Islands with more than 200 participating physicians in St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas.
