Glenn v. HealthLink HMO, Inc.

Dr. Byron Glenn brought breach of contract claims against HealthLink HMO and HealthLink PPO (HealthLink) alleging breach of an HMO Agreement and a PPO Agreement. The Circuit Court of Girardeau County granted summary judgment in favor of HealthLink, and the Missouri Court of Appeals affirmed in part and reversed in part.


Glenn signed HMO and PPO agreements in 2001 to become a network provider for HealthLink. Beginning in 2007, after receiving complaints about Glenn’s services, HealthLink provided Glenn with various notices of termination of the agreements and subsequently rescinded the notices. HealthLink eventually terminated the PPO agreement and provided timely notice of non-renewal of the HMO agreement. HealthLink removed Glenn’s name from two of HealthLink’s online provider directories before the HMO agreement expired.
