UNITED AMERICAN AFFILIATE RECEIVES NEW YORK STATE APPROVAL

 DETROIT, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- United American Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: UAH) today announced that HealthScope/United, Inc. has received approval from the State of New York Department of Health of a management agreement with Catholic Medical Center of Brooklyn and Queens, Inc.
 This approval clears the way for completing the HMO licensure of the Medical Center which is expected by early September, UAH noted.
 After licensing, the Catholic Medical Center of Brooklyn and Queens, Inc., the new HMO, under a contract negotiated with the City of New York Human Resources Administration, can begin prompt marketing to the largest pool of Medicaid eligibles in the country, UAH pointed out. In its immediate service area, the Medicaid population is in excess of 500,000, of which as many as 200,000 have been serviced by the Catholic Medical Center, making them an available potential marketing target, UAH stated.
 United American Healthcare Corporation said it holds and can exercise at its option a warrant to acquire a controlling interest of HealthScope/United at any time prior to March 1998. This provision was a condition agreed upon under the terms of the lending agreement between United American Healthcare Corporation and HealthScope/United, UAH explained, under which UAH committed to lend up to $2.2 million in secured financing.
 "We see this as an important breakthrough," said Dr. Julius Combs, Chairman and C.E.O. of United American Healthcare Corporation. "Sometimes these kinds of deals take a while to develop but, when they do, they offer great opportunities. We see this as a major development in our business plan," Dr. Combs continued.
 United American Healthcare Corporation is a health care management company. UAH provides a full range of services to two health maintenance organizations -- OmniCare Health Plan in southeast Michigan and Personal Physician Care of Ohio, based in Cleveland. The company provides management services for self funded companies through the recent acquisition of Baltimore-based Corporate Healthcare Financing. The company is seeking to pursue additional opportunities as they arise in the changing health care industry.
