Anthem Blue Cross Settlement

This is a settlement for the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield lawsuit.

California's largest for-profit health insurer has agreed to take back 2,330 clients, unconditionally, after having dropped them for filing expense claims for medical care. Further, the company will pay the out of pocket medical expenses for those clients, which could total as much as $14 million.

Anthem has also agreed to pay a $1 million fine to the California Department of Insurance, which has, in exchange, agreed to stop its prosecution of the company.

This settlement follows on from an agreement reached last year between Anthem and the Department of Managed Health Care, another state regulator, in which the health insurer agreed to pay a $10 million fine.
