Nemours Foundation Sues United Healthcare Entities

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - The foundation that owns the Alfred I. du Pont Hospital for Children in Delaware and various pediatric physician practices in the region is suing United Healthcare entities in three states for unpaid bills.
    
Lawyers for the Nemours Foundation filed lawsuits in federal court in Delaware on Wednesday against United Healthcare of Pennsylvania, United Healthcare of the Mid-Atlantic, and United Healthcare Community Plan of New Jersey.
    
The lawsuits allege that Nemours is 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 recently failed to come to contract terms in Delaware, resulting in Nemours and A.I. du Pont no longer considered in-network providers for patients covered by United.
