In 2009, UnitedHealth Group agreed to settle for $350 million a lawsuit the American Medical Association filed charging the insurer with underpaying for out-of-network services. Now, a federal judge has issued rulings to release $200 million to settle claims that physicians filed against UnitedHealth.
