IN RE MANAGED CARE LITIGATION, MDL NO. 1334
Our lawyers were the principal litigators and negotiators in this litigation, representing a certified class of physicians and medical associations against nine of the largest managed care companies in the United States, including AETNA, CIGNA, United, Healthnet, Humana, PacifiCare, Prudential and WellPoint. The suit alleged that these defendants engaged in a civil conspiracy in violation of the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”) to wrongfully and fraudulently pay doctors less than the amounts to which they were entitled. Settlements were reached with AETNA, CIGNA, Healthnet, Humana, Prudential and Wellpoint consisting of monetary relief and significant business practice changes valued in the billions of dollars.
