Regulators end monitoring of UnitedHealthcare claims

The settlement arose from complaints about the timeliness with which United processed claims. The insurer agreed to pay $14 million and abide by a series of standards monitored by the NAIC.

In a report released Friday, the NAIC said United had "met or exceeded" its standards, bringing its oversight to a close.

“We are pleased to report a successful outcome and believe this is an important step toward quality improvement and regulatory compliance for UnitedHealthcare," Iowa Insurance Commissioner Susan Voss said in a statement.
