UnitedHealthcare, doctors fight in federal court over physician network cuts

The Hartford Courant, December 4, 2013
With the enrollment deadline for 2014 Medicare plans only days away, a federal judge is about to rule on a temporary injunction that would keep UnitedHealthcare from cutting its Medicare Advantage network by an estimated 2,200 doctors. A decision awaits affidavits requested by the judge, who could rule as soon as Wednesday. The enrollment deadline is Saturday. Meanwhile, some of UnitedHealthcare's estimated 58,000 customers in Connecticut are left wondering if their doctors will be in or out of network. If they're out, customers would have to pay much more to be treated by them.
