CHARLOTTE — UnitedHealthcare members who use CaroMont Health are getting some good news.
Action 9′s Jason Stoogenke found out both sides have worked out a deal with just days to spare.
Their current contract was up on April 1. After that, United members would have had to pay out-of-network at many CaroMont facilities or find new doctors.

The following were the affected CaroMont facilities:
