United Healthcare Insurance fined for slow processing of insurance claims

Some of the states have been prodding the insurance companies to clean up their acts. In Georgia, United Healthcare has been fined $750K for delaying payments on health claims. The Insurance Commissioner Jon Oxendine directed United Healthcare and its sister companies to pay the fines. Says Oxendine, “It is unfortunate that fines must be imposed to encourage compliance, consumers and doctors deserve prompt payments.”

UnitedHealthcare says it processes 97 percent of its claims within 15 days.
