Join Leif Murphy, TeamHealth CEO, as he sits down with Dr. Rob Strauss in the latest edition of the Beyond Clinical Medicine podcast. In this episode, Taking on UnitedHealthcare - Behind the Fight to Protect our Healthcare Heroes, Murphy details the lawsuit against United and why TeamHealth decided to take on the insurance giant on behalf of clinicians nationwide. Murphy notes the jury sent a strong message to United finding in favor of the TeamHealth plaintiffs and subsequently awarding $60 million in punitive damages, “ I believe the message that came from the jury is very significant and very clear, which is you cannot use unfair payment practices without facing a consequence.”
