UnitedHealthcare postpones policy to more heavily scrutinize payments for ER visits after backlash

A policy by UnitedHealthcare to more heavily scrutinize ER visits has been postponed after pushback.

The company says it will use the time to "educate consumers, customers and providers on the new policy and help ensure that people visit an appropriate site of service for non-emergency care needs."
