UnitedHealth to honor some of healthcare law regardless of ruling
Los Angeles Times

Regardless of how the Supreme Court rules on the federal healthcare law, the nation’s largest health insurer said it would continue to honor some of the law’s more popular provisions, including preventive screenings at no cost and the elimination of lifetime limits on medical care.

This move by UnitedHealth Group Inc., which has nearly 36 million customers nationwide, is expected to pressure rival insurers to follow suit, and it may offer some clarity to consumers worried about how the court’s ruling could affect them.
