UnitedHealthcare will no longer share its claims data with the Health Care Cost Institute, the Politico Morning eHealth newsletter reports.
HCCI collects claims data from multiple payers and other healthcare organizations — including Aetna, Humana and Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente — and partners with researchers to study the high cost of healthcare in the U.S.
Researchers will be able to continue to access UnitedHealthcare data until Dec. 31, 2022.
HCCI plans to approve up to 10 new projects during the first half of 2019, Politico adds.
