LA Insurance Commissioner Donelon: UNO, Xavier To Get $460K

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Louisiana's insurance commissioner says six state higher education institutions will divide more than $2.7 million — the result of the dissolution of a failed health maintenance organization.

         Jim Donelon says in a Monday news release that LSU-Shreveport, Southern University, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, the University of New Orleans and Xavier University each will get about $460,000.

         The health maintenance organization AmCare was ordered into liquidation in 2011. Louisiana was among states that sued AmCare's parent company and were awarded compensatory and punitive damages.
