Hoboken (N.J.) University Medical Center and Bayonne (N.J.) Medical Center, two for-profit hospitals owned by Hudson Hospital Holdco, have terminated health coverage contracts with two of the largest health insurers in the country — UnitedHealthcare and Aetna, according to a Jersey Journal report.

Now, BMC is in-network with Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, Health First of New Jersey and Medicare/Medicaid, according to the report. HUMC is in-network with those same payors as well as Amerigroup, NJ Health, Magnacare, Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield and Carepoint Healthcare.


Hospital officials did not disclose reasons for the contract terminations.
