UnitedHealth Group

O’Melveny won an important victory for UnitedHealth Group when the Third Circuit affirmed the district court’s decision to dismiss a putative nationwide ERISA class action brought on behalf of out-of-network chiropractors challenging UHG’s policy of declining reimbursement for a controversial surgical procedure to relieve joint pain. O’Melveny successfully argued that plaintiffs failed to allege that the procedure met the standards for coverage under the patients’ plans.
