DOJ Intervenes in Whistleblower Lawsuit Against UnitedHealth

The lawsuit alleges that UnitedHealth “games” the Medicare Advantage payment system by “making patients look sicker than they are,” and overbilling the government. Andersen Sleater Sianni represents whistleblowers in actions alleging fraud against the government. Click here to read more about the UnitedHealth lawsuit.
