UnitedHealthcare insurance company, the largest of its kind within the U.S., announced on Thursday it will delay rolling out a new and controversial emergency department policy, The New York Times reports.

The change, which would be effective July 1, would begin to retroactively assess any and all emergency department or ED insurance claims to determine whether or not the visit was truly “emergent” or “non-emergent.” Claims will be evaluated based on patients’ conditions, the variety of tests and diagnostics run while visiting, other complications and more.

The company says if a claim is given a “non-emergent” status, patients can contest the update by accessing paperwork online.
