The Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services has fined a health insurer $34,000 in connection with allegations that the insurer rejected claims without conducting reasonable investigations.

The Oregon department imposed the fine on PacifiCare of Oregon Inc., which was part of a company that is now part of UnitedHealth Group Inc., Minnetonka, Minn.

The department’s Insurance Division responded to a consumer complaint about an unpaid health claim by asking PacifiCare to review similar claims.
