A federal court in New York, overseeing a proposed class action settlement against United Healthcare for underpaying professional provider claims, has confirmed that the settlement does not cover claims for services and supplies rendered by facilities.

“The AMA did a good job representing professional provider members” The order came in response to a request of the court from Hooper, Lundy & Bookman, P.C. (HLB), following United’s attempt to assert that some of the claims in a lawsuit pending in Los Angeles federal court on behalf of all ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) in the country were covered by the proposed settlement in New York.
