The largest health insurer in the United States,UnitedHealth, has reportedly been sued by three customers who have accused the company of overcharging co-payments for prescription drugs and pocketing the difference. The lawsuit, which was filed in a Minnesota federal court this week by three UnitedHealth customers, is looking to represent a nationwide class that it says could include thousands of people insured by UnitedHealth. In their filing, the customers claim that UnitedHealth's co-payment practices violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, a federal law used to target illegal conspiracies.
