To Parents with Neighborhood Health Plan of RI Insurance


        Drs. Concannon & Vitale no longer accepts Neighborhood Health Plan of RI insurance.


Because of this, we will not be able to attend to your infant at Women & Infants Hospital.  Your baby may be re-assigned to Dr Czynski and his staff of pediatricians for care while in the hospital.

If you would like to choose us as your pediatricians, and you have RI Medical Assistance through Neighborhood Health Plan of RI you MUST change your health insurance plan to one we accept, such as United HealthCare.  Of course if you have commercial insurance, we also accept Blue Cross, Tufts, Aetna, CIGNA, TriCare, and Harvard-Pilgrim.  One of these insurances we accept MUST be in effect before we can see your child in our office.


United HealthCare is a company with an excellent reputation for patient and customer service, is accepted by all of our covering doctors, and by the vast majority of pediatric specialists. It is also accepted by most all adult medical providers that also accept Neighborhood Health Plan of RI. To check as to whether all your family’s doctors and other care providers accept United HealthCare for RIteCare call HealthSource RI at 855-840-4774 or go to:

You can request this change immediately within the first 90 days of having a new baby,
or at your annual Medicaid benefits review, if your choice of pediatricians will not
accept your present insurance.

The easiest way to accomplish this task is by calling Neighborhood-RI customer service at 844-602-3469 to ask to be switched over to United HealthCare for RIteCare. You will need to provide the Neighborhood ID and/or Social Security numbers for each of your family members. Under Federal Medicaid regulations you have a right to request this change, but know that this change will be effective for all members of your immediate family that are currently covered by Neighborhood. Please let us know should you encounter any push-back by Neighborhood Health Plan of RI regarding your right to change, and please inform us as soon as possible when this switch has been requested
