CT orders Health Net of the Northeast to pay $1.3 million in fines, restitution

Hartford Courant, April 7, 2009
Health Net of the Northeast is paying $1.3 million in fines to the state and restitution to Connecticut consumers for improperly denying or underpaying claims and other violations of state law, Insurance Commissioner Thomas R. Sullivan said. Sullivan ordered Health Net to pay fines totaling $496,000 and the company has paid $750,066 in restitution to people whose claims were handled incorrectly. Health Net failed to conduct a "reasonable investigation" before ruling on claims, paid claims late and without required interest, and didn't correctly reimburse healthcare providers for out-of-network claims, the department's order says.
