Minn. AG Swanson asks feds to investigate Humana

Posted: Updated:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- State Attorney General Lori Swanson is asking the federal government to investigate claims from Minnesotans that health insurance company Humana denied claims for medical services required by law, among other charges.

Swanson says Friday she laid out the complaints in a letter to federal officials and plans to continue gathering allegations from Minnesotans. Louisville, Ky.-based Humana is one of the nation's largest health care insurers through Medicare Advantage, a private policy that covers seniors.

Swanson tells the Star Tribune she wants the company to honor promises to seniors. She has affidavits from 25 Minnesotans that allege denied claims, overcharges on co-payments and coinsurance, and failure to disclose providers in the network.

A Humana spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
