The Department of Justice is appealing a federal judge’s decision allowing UnitedHealth Group Inc.’s $13 billion purchase of Change Healthcare Inc. to close, reports Healthcare Dive. The DOJ, joined by New York and Minnesota, filed a notice of appeal on Nov. 19 following U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols’ September ruling that dealt a blow to the department by greenlighting the UnitedHealth-Change deal. UnitedHealth closed its acquisition of the health technology firm in October.
