A ruling by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia will allow a portion of a kickback case against UnitedHealth Group Inc. and its subsidiary, AmeriChoice New Jersey, to proceed. A three-judge panel made the ruling in an appeals case from district court. The whistleblower suit involves charges by two former employees that UHG and AmeriChoice provided kickbacks to a New Jersey medical clinic to induce the clinic to switch its patients to the healthcare provider’s Medicare and Medicaid programs.
