Prisma Health, a South-Carolina-based health system, alleges in a lawsuit filed Aug. 23 that UnitedHealthcare breached the parties’ confidentiality agreement and provided inaccurate statements to the media about Prisma’s proposed rates for 2024. The suit claims that UnitedHealthcare undermined good-faith negotiations by issuing multiple statements to the media without providing advance notice to Prisma.

Prisma sought a temporary restraining order to prevent United from divulging any further third party proprietary business information and is asking the court to require UnitedHealthcare to retract its previous media statements. Prisma alleged the insurer issued “false and misleading” statements in a “bad faith attempt to gain leverage during negotiations.”
