UnitedHealthcare to Pay $11.5 Million Settlement over Improper Reimbursements

The North Carolina Medical Society and three other state medical societies filed the lawsuits in 2004. UnitedHealth Group Inc.'s UnitedHealthcare will pay $11.5 million to settle lawsuits four state medical societies brought against the company. Filed in 2004, the North Carolina Medical Society's lawsuit alleged that the insurer improperly engaged in business practices to deny its members' reimbursements. State medical societies in Tennessee, Connecticut and New York also brought similar actions against UnitedHealthcare.

Palo Alto Medical Foundation and UnitedHealthcare Collaborate to Improve Patient Care in Northern California

Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF) and UnitedHealthcare have launched an accountable care organization (ACO) to improve how patient care is coordinated and delivered for more than 63,000 Northern California residents enrolled in UnitedHealthcare's employer-sponsored health plans. The ACO will help shift California's health care system to one that rewards quality and value instead of the volume of procedures performed. Specifically, the ACO will transition PAMF from a fee-for-service compensation model to a value-based approach in which the organization is rewarded for achieving certain evidence-based measures - such as hospital readmission rates, disease management and prevention, and patient safety - as well as total cost savings. Through this collaboration, UnitedHealthcare will complement PAMF's own data by providing additional support to manage overall population health; including technology and information that will help the group's more than 500 primary care physicians take specific actions that improve quality and lower costs. Actionable data may include patient profiles, specific HEDIS performance measures on care and service, and real-time notification of ER and inpatient admissions. Patient navigators may also be used to support community-based care coordination, such as helping with transition plans after an individual is discharged from the hospital. This approach will enable physicians to identify best practices for overall patient wellness and disease management.

For the quarter, the company reported total revenues of $35,756 million against $31,708 million a year ago. Earnings from operations were $2,640 million against $2,054 million a year ago. Earnings before income taxes were $2,490 million against $1,894 million a year ago. Net earnings were $1,413 million against $1,099 million a year ago.

Revenue growth was broad-based, with both UnitedHealthcare and Optum revenues growing by double digit percentages. Cash flows from operations grew 61% year-over-year due to growth in risk-based products and the expansion in overall earnings. The company expects 2015 revenues of approximately $143 billion, an increase of $2 billion from the previous outlook, due to stronger business growth in the first quarter. Earnings are now expected to be in a range of $6.15 to $6.30 per share, an increase from the prior outlook of $6.00 to $6.25 per share, despite absorbing approximately $0.10 per share from the proposed combination with Catamaran Corporation, including transaction costs and the effect of moderated share repurchase activity. Management expects the combination to contribute $0.30 per share to UnitedHealth group’s 2016 earnings. Reflecting the increased outlook for revenues and earnings, the company is raising its projection for 2015 cash flows from operations to a range of $8.2 billion to $8.4 billion.
