Multi-District Litigation Settlements Archive
The AMA has compiled pertinent information regarding the historic Multi-District Litigation (MDL) settlements. The class action lawsuit known as Managed Care Litigation (MDL No. 1334) was originally filed in 2000 and was a combination of several cases filed around the country by 20 state and county medical associations on behalf of physicians against for-profit health insurance companies. The basic allegations were that these health insurance companies, among other complaints, systematically denied, delayed and/or reduced payment to physicians who had delivered services to covered patients. Seven settlements with national health insurers were reached: Aetna; CIGNA; Prudential; Anthem/WellPoint; HealthNet; and Humana. Although these settlements have expired, they still provide important historical information.
