UnitedHealth Group Inc. completed its purchase of Change Healthcare, the company announced Oct. 3, after defeating the Department of Justice in federal court over the agency’s attempt to block the $13 billion deal, Healthcare Dive reports. The DOJ had sued to block the health giant from buying health technology firm Change Healthcare over allegations UnitedHealth would mine data from billions of health care claims including from its health insurance rivals, the report says. But on Sept. 19, federal Judge Carl Nichols ruled in favor of UnitedHealth.
