Slow payments cost United Healthcare $750,000

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, November 3, 2009

United Healthcare Insurance Co. has been ordered to pay $750,000 for failure to pay doctors' claims within 15 days of receipt as required by Georgia law. The fine, among the largest levied by the Georgia Department of Insurance, stemmed from an audit that found 17.25% of claims payments to doctors were late during the last three months of 2008.
