Thieler Law Announces Investigation of Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association
SAN DIEGO--()--Prof. Dr. Thieler-Prof. Dr. Boeh-Thieler-Seitz Corp. ("Thieler Law") announces an investigation on behalf of those who from May 17, 2008 to the present individually purchased health insurance or purchased group health insurance for less than 200 employees from Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
If you paid health insurance premiums from May 17, 2008 to the present for individual or small group full-service commercial health insurance by Blue Cross and Blue Shield in any of the below-listed states, you have certain options and you should contact us at mail@Thieler-Boeh-Seitz.com or call +1 619-866-6157.
The investigation seeks to determine whether Blue Cross and Blue Shield in the below-listed states has driven up health care costs by conspiring to carve up the insurance market. More specifically, the investigation concerns whether that several state Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans through their national trade group – the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association - have potentially agreed not to compete.
The states that could be affected include the following:
- Western Pennsylvania
- Rhode Island
- New Hampshire
- Southwestern Virginia
- North Dakota
- Washington, D.C.
Recently a purchaser who paid health insurance premiums to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama filed a lawsuit against Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama and the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association over an alleged ongoing conspiracy in violation of the Sherman Act. The plaintiff alleges that the defendants have charged inflated premiums as a result of the alleged illegal conspiracy and as a result of anticompetitive conduct it has taken in its illegal efforts to establish and maintain monopoly power throughout Alabama.
Those who paid health insurance premiums from May 17, 2008 to the present for individual or small group full-service commercial health insurance by Blue Cross and Blue Shield in the above-listed states have certain options and should contact us at:
