Health insurer accused of overcharging millions – United Health Care/Oxford Insurance 50 Million Fine
State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said he is continuing his own investigation into UnitedHealth Group, its Ingenix subsidiary and several other health insurers despite UnitedHealth's $50 million settlement with New York Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo earlier this week.
The settlement resolved certain claims relating to insurance reimbursements for out-of-network health care. But Blumenthal said he's still investigating the alleged scheme, which centered around Ingenix, which employs about 400 in Rocky Hill.
"My investigation into UnitedHealth Group, its Ingenix subsidiary and several other insurers is continuing to ensure that any company that may have misused or manipulated reimbursement rates is held accountable, including possible restitution for consumers," Blumenthal said in a statement released late Tuesday.
