The Department of Justice, joined by Minnesota and New York, plans to appeal a federal court decision allowing UnitedHealth Group to proceed with its proposal to acquire Change Healthcare, according to a notice filed Friday with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. AHA had urged DOJ to investigate the proposed acquisition, which could reduce competition for the sale of health care information technology services to hospitals and other health care providers, and intends to file a friend-of-the-court brief in support of DOJ in the appeal.
