Presto Chango, Can a Leopard Change His Spots?

UnitedHealth cured the Ingenix stigma by simply changing its name to OptumInsight. It’s as though they made a deal with a witness protection program. Like other large medical insurers, over the years, they sustain fines for federal racketeering, skirt state laws by systematically reducing, denying and delaying payments owed to doctors for medical care and pay fines in the billions and still they continue on!

Who dispenses Medicare and ACA money? Who controls the prices that the exchanges charge? And who is operating the very workings of the exchanges? That would be the leaders of the pack, UnitedHealth and Optum.

Santa Fe, New Mexico, 18 June 2015
by TAMMM Staff

The infamous Ingenix, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UnitedHealthGroup, decided to have a baby: OptumInsight.

It’s touching, really. A new baby with a new name…  and an even bigger game!

The baby was born on April 11, 2011, as reported in this article by Emily Berry for American Medical News, “Ingenix name retired as United re-brands subsidiaries”. The baby is now a budding 4-year-old and heading for industry domination.

United HealthGroup’s health data subsidiary Ingenix, once known for its role in setting out-of-network physician payments, now will be known as OptumInsight.

Ingenix was forced to shutter that business after an investigation by and subsequent settlement with the New York attorney general’s office.

At the time, Andrew Cuomo, then New York’s attorney general and now governor, said the databases were skewed to produce lower payment rates for physicians and patients for out-of-network care. Cuomo ordered Ingenix to stop producing the database as soon as a new, independently derived and operated database could be created. That new database, FAIR Health, is now operational and has replaced the PHCS and MDR products.

Company spokeswoman Christine Farazi said the decision to re-brand was not driven by negative publicity linked to the Ingenix brand.

Right. Farazi saw things differently. She says the decision to “unify our brand presence under the Optum master brand was absolutely driven by what our clients told us they need.” How convenient.

To put the Ingenix fraud into perspective, Governor Cuomo described a typical scenario. An out-of-network doctor who charges $200 for an office visit is told that the “going rate” is only $77. The insurer would then normally pay only 80 percent of that figure, leaving the patient responsible for the difference of about $138. At the heart of New York’s lawsuit is how that $77 rate was set in the first place. Come to find out, the number is derived from a database of claims data created and maintained by Ingenix and then sold to other insurers.

Don’t take our word for it. Cuomo’s Attorney General described Ingenix and UnitedHealth’s use of data as “deception, manipulation of data and outright fraud.”

Optum Structure

The following analysis of the earnings and structure of Optum clearly reveals that these boys are in it for the really big bucks.

Please pay special attention to Larry Renfro, now head of Optum, but formerly the president of AARP Financial.

Previously, we have discussed the cozy relationship between AARP and UnitedHealth who are together being sued in a class action suit brought by several parties for insurance fraud. So the acorn does not fall far from the tree!

If this were not so tragic with respect to the American public’s best interests, it could be the basis of a sitcom series.

Optum is well down the track in establishing a giant conglomerate which incorporates their version of two incredible, unproven and self-serving premises in healthcare: Evidence-Based Medicine and Value-Based Pricing. (TAMMM has discussed EBM previously in the article, “The Evidence-Based Medicine Lie Exposed” and will be delving into Value-Based Pricing very soon.)

Concurrently, the big insurance players are eating each other up through mergers, now underway, that will likely result in two-to-three major medical insurance behemoths. These are likely to be led by UnitedHealth and Optum, their keeper of the sacred data, which justifies fixing prices to fuel the American medical money machine.

When these boys play, they play for keeps. Ingenix may be history, but Optum, the son of Frankenstein, has special powers and a giant war chest which only legislation and very tight regulations can control. The government is unlikely to intervene.

And wouldn’t you know it? This insurance industry domination arrangement plays right into the hands of the Affordable Care Act. No wonder Obama has a big grin on his face. His relationship with AARP/United has never been stronger. The likelihood that he will personally benefit once he leaves the hallowed halls of the White House is extremely high.

Here is a direct quote from our Dear Leader in February of this year. It’s truly poetic.

Remarks by the President at the AARP

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. (Applause.) It is great to be back here—not just to pick up my AARP card. (Laughter.) I want to thank Jo Ann and everybody at AARP for the work you do every single day on behalf of seniors. I am especially grateful to all of you for the work you’re doing to help us prepare for the White House Conference on Aging, which will be coming up later this year and will cover a whole host of issues, including protecting one of the most critical components of middle-class life, and that’s a secure and dignified retirement. And that’s what we’re here to talk about today.

You see, ladies and gentlemen, what has happened to medicine in America has happened across the board in so many industries. The public knows it and the ratings show it. Every major poll indicates that more than half of the population of the country disapproves of Obama’s performance. Our contention is that as Obamacare settles in (pending the outcome of the Supreme Court Case King v. Burwell) these stats of disapproval will continue to plummet.

Don’t Forget the Stupidity of the American Voter

The most recent revelation as reported by Forbes is that Jonathan Gruber of MIT, one of the chief architects of Obamacare, who mocked “the stupidity of the American voter” for not perceiving the ways in which the controversial health law concealed its true costs, was in no way an independent expert.

At the time, President Obama and others went through great lengths to deny Gruber’s centrality to Obamacare. But 20,000 pages of new emails, obtained from MIT by the House Oversight Committee, appear to prove Gruber’s critical role. And Gruber’s role may help decide the King v. Burwell case that is now before the Supreme Court, the one that will shape Obamacare’s implementation for years to come.

Well, America: Belly up to the bar. You’re buying drinks for the house!

In other words, the architects knew very well that Obamacare was not going to save you and me money. They knew it would be quite the opposite. They pulled a fast one on the public and some members of Congress. But now the bill is coming due. Americans are beginning to realize that they may have insurance, but that they are not covered for real medical care because it’s too expensive.

So who do you think dispenses Medicare and ACA money? Who controls the prices that the exchanges charge? And who is operating the very workings of the exchanges? It’s UnitedHealth and Optum that stand to make a killing through Obamacare. A killing which they played a key role in arranging and pushing through Congress with four healthcare lobbyists for every one Representative and Senator in the country when Obamacare was being debated.

In fact, UnitedHealth has made a cottage industry out of the ACA through Optum, which has become the go-to fix-it company for troubled insurance exchanges. Yes, it was our very own Optum that was on the team ordered to swoop in and help the disastrous rollout of healthcare.gov get back on track.

Forget not the famous words of Nancy Pelosi, that pillar of wisdom, which you can hear again for posterity: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it away from the fog of the controversy.”

Well folks, you’re about to find out what’s in it…what’s in it for United and Optum. They are standing in the wings to bag billions as the top dog of the biggest, most powerful insurance cartel ever.

Optum, Inc.: Your Worst Nightmare

UnitedHealth Group (with 350 Incorporated Affiliates) has two operating businesses:

  1. UnitedHealthcare, a health benefits business that serves more than 70 million individuals nationwide, and
  2. Optum, a health services business with three operating divisions:
    1. OptumHealth
    2. OptumInsight (previously Ingenix)
    3. OptumRx (previously Prescription Solutions)

Keep in mind all of these Optum companies are wholly-owned subsidiaries of UnitedHealth Group. And just look how well they are performing for their parent:

Optumhealth, Inc. Reports Earnings Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2014

For the period, the company reported revenues of $2.8 billion grew 14 percent year-over-year, led by expansion and growth in integrated care delivery services. Earnings from operations were up 16 percent year-over-year. These results were led by Collaborative Care businesses.

Who is the face of the Optum baby? That would be Larry C. Renfro, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Optum. His total calculated compensation for 2014 was a tad more than $12 million. His base salary is only $900,000. The rest of the cash showers down in bonuses and stock options and other perks of the trade.

And wouldn’t you know it. Mr. Renfro was formerly the president of AARP Financial. In fact, he lead the team that created AARP Financial and the AARP Funds!

Let’s look at Optum’s ever-growing empire Mr. Renfro orchestrates:

  1. Optum, Inc
  2. Optum Health Financial
  3. Optum Bank
  4. Optum Palliative and Hospice Care

[If you can find out what Optum Rocket, Inc. is, we’d love to know!]

Before We Forget

Let’s add Optum Clinics Holdings, a new subsidiary that was formed in 2015, but the company’s business is not disclosed. There’s something strange about them. They raised more than $36 million in an exchange of shares from unknown investors. Hmmm…

Yep, United changed the name of their failed Ingenix bomb. But, the baby monster is back, smarter than ever. And the public is in their crosshairs.

We’ll have more to say soon about what Optum is up to. This is just the opening pitch!
