UnitedHealth, Change Signal Support for Salvaging Their Deal

Both UnitedHealth Group and Change Healthcare Inc. are making it increasingly clear that they aren’t giving up on their proposed $13 billion transaction despite federal regulators’ move to block the deal. However, one antitrust attorney is skeptical that the two companies will ever end up combining.

Bloomberg reported on April 1 that Change “is in advanced talks” to sell its payment integrity business — ClaimsXten — to private equity firm New Mountain Capital for more than $2 billion, citing “people with knowledge of the matter.” The news outlet noted that no deal had yet been struck, and that it is not clear whether the divestment would still proceed if UnitedHealth’s deal to buy Change unravels.
