Anthem Blue Cross TO Pay California Consumers Over $8 Million, Stems Back To Lawsuit

Published on

SANTA MONICA (KRON) — Anthem Blue Cross will pay more than $8 million to California consumers.

It stems back to a lawsuit, challenging mid-year changes that the insurance company made to individual plans in 2011. The lawsuit claimed Anthem illegally increased “annual deductibles” and other out-of-pocket costs.

Consumers do not need to file a claim to receive reimbursement.

In December, checks will be mailed to those who paid more as a result of the mid-year changes.

About 50,000 Anthem customers were impacted by the claims. Consumers do not need to file a claim to get reimbursed.

Checks will be mailed to affected consumers sometime in December.
