Eastside family physician group signs insurance contract with United Healthcare

Primary Care Associates, a 10-member physician group in east Wichita, said today it has signed a contract with insurer United Healthcare.

PCA said in a news release that it had previously stopped accepting United Healthcare insurance in 2005.

The doctors group said increased pressure from patients and United Healthcare's improved customer service and expanded network led it to begin contract discussions earlier this year.

PCA is located at 7111 E. 21st.
