Foundation That Owns A.I. duPont Settles Lawsuits

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - The foundation that owns the Alfred I. du Pont Hospital for Children in Delaware and various pediatric practices in the region has settled lawsuits against two United Healthcare entities for unpaid bills.

Federal court documents filed this week indicate that the Nemours Foundation has settled lawsuits against United Healthcare of the Mid-Atlantic and United Healthcare Community Plan of New Jersey. A third lawsuit against United Healthcare of Pennsylvania remains pending.

The lawsuits alleged that Nemours was owed more than $4.5 million for services provided to United Healthcare members through Medicaid and children's health insurance programs in Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey.

Nemours and United failed to come to contract terms in Delaware earlier this year, resulting in Nemours' and A.I. du Pont's loss of in-network status for United policyholders.
