Garafalo v. Empire Blue Cross and Blue Shield
|Court:||United States District Court, Southern District of New York|
Plaintiffs filed this consumer fraud class action on behalf of over four million New Yorkers who maintain health insurance with or through Empire Blue Cross & Blue Shield. The lawsuit contends that Empire improperly overcharged plan participants for co-payments by obtaining reduced rates for services from healthcare providers, and not passing on the savings to the insureds.
Settled for $5.6 million - 100% of class damages.
