Horizon Blue Cross/Shield Ready to Pay Up on Eating Disorder Claims

Posted by Andrew J. Barovick | Nov 24, 2008 | 0 Comments

If you are a New Jersey resident insured by Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield , and you have an eating disorder, your insurer will have to pony up and pay for your treatment, if a preliminary settlement agreement is approved, as reported by Henry Gottlieb in today's LAW.COM .  But first, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield must pay the insureds who were improperly denied coverage, and the class action lawyers that brought the suit–a number that totals almost $3.6 million dollars.

Congratulations to Bruce Nagel , of Roseland, New Jersey's Nagel Rice for forcing Horizon to do what its tens of thousands of insureds have always paid it to do–cover their medical expenses.
