UNITED AMERICAN HEALTHCARE CORPORATION COMMENTS ON NEW BUSINESS PROSPECTS

 DETROIT, Nov. 20 ~PRNewswire~ -- United American Healthcare Corporation (NASDAQ: UAHC) today said it has a number of new business possibilities, all of which are in line with the company's strategy of extending its managed care expertise into new locations and healthcare formats.
 "While we have discussions in process with a number of entities, we want to be clear that none of these prospective deals have been closed," said Julius V. Combs, M.D., chairman. "But we feel it is important to illustrate the level and scope of activity in this area.
 "Currently two joint ventures are being negotiated between UAHC and two separate companies in the eastern part of the country to develop managed care systems for urban Medicaid populations. We are also negotiating a consulting agreement with an organization in the South to put in place a managed care organization for Medicaid.
 "In another arena, we have begun developing extensive provider networks in several areas which have been designated by national insurance companies as potential joint venture~preferred provider~and third party administrator arrangements. The development of these networks also allow the company to pursue major self-funded companies and give them the benefit of UAHC expertise," Dr. Combs said.
 "Locally, UAHC has submitted a proposal to the City of Detroit to manage its self-funded health program. The date of notification to the successful bidder will be Dec. 20, 1992.
 "The current national concern over the inadequacy of the health care system in this country represents a great opportunity for UAHC. In all camps, the major proposals for solutions rely, to a great extent, on managed care. We are ideally positioned to take advantage of this wide window of opportunity," Dr. Combs concluded.
 United American Healthcare Corp. is a health care management company. UAHC 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's strategy is to expand its expertise into avenues such as Third Party Administrator services as with Detroit's Bing Group.
