DOVER, Del. (AP) - The foundation that owns the Alfred I. du Pont Hospital for Children in Delaware and various pediatric practices in the region has settled a lawsuit against United Healthcare of Pennsylvania for unpaid bills.

A stipulation of dismissal filed in federal court Wednesday follows settlements reached last summer in two similar lawsuits filed by the Nemours Foundation against United Healthcare of the Mid-Atlantic and United Healthcare Community Plan of New Jersey.

The lawsuits alleged that Nemours was owed more than $4.5 million for services provided to United Healthcare members through Medicaid and children’s health insurance programs in Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey.

Nemours and United failed to come to contract terms in Delaware last year, resulting in Nemours’ and A.I. du Pont’s loss of in-network status for United policyholders.
