Los Angeles Anthem EPO Lawsuit Lawyer
Nationally-Recognized Insurance Lawyer Helping California Anthem Blue Cross EPO Members
The Law Offices of Scott Glovsky is leading the charge for members of Anthem Blue Cross’s (“Anthem”) exclusive provider organization (“EPO”) that were misled by Anthem’s activities. Anthem sent misleading membership cards to members of Anthem’s EPO. The membership cards indicated that the members’ subscribed to a preferred provider organization (“PPO”) plan instead of an EPO plan. This is significant because in PPO plans members have access to a huge network of Anthem providers and the ability to obtain covered treatment from out-of-network providers. Unlike PPO plans, in EPO plans, members only have access to an extremely limited network of providers and no coverage for out-of-network providers.
Anthem EPO Members Seeking Reimbursement and Bad Faith Damages
Many members who received the misleading membership cards sought services from healthcare professionals who accept Anthem’s PPO insurance but not Anthem’s EPO insurance. When the members then sought coverage for the services from Anthem under their EPO policies, Anthem denied the claims leaving its members to pay out of pocket for the costs.
