New York announced a settlement with UnitedHealth Group resolving concerns that United’s business practices in New York unlawfully restrained competition in the market for certain elder and long term care insurance products. The settlement provides that United may not require skilled nursing facilities seeking to participate in United’s broader insurance network to also contract with United for a separate service – United’s institutional special needs plan. The Attorney General had received complaints that United was foreclosing competition by requiring skilled nursing facilities to accept its institutional special needs plan as a condition for participating in its broader provider network.
