Class Action Suit

Class Action Settlement between the American Medical Association and United Healthcare

On May 3, 2010, a  class action settlement between the American Medical Association (AMA) and United Healthcare (UHC) concerning Empire Plan members who received out-of-network medical services between March 15, 1994 and November 18, 2009. Empire Plan enrollees were sent notice of the settlement around that time.  This nationwide settlement agreement resolves class action litigation filed on behalf of the AMA, health plan members, health care providers, and state medical societies concerning UHC’s reimbursement of out-of-network services.  All questions should be directed to Berdon Claims Administration LLC which is responsible for administering the settlement; neither UHC nor EBD can provide guidance to enrollees.

 For complete information regarding the settlement, please advise enrollees to visit their website at www.berdonclaims.com; claim forms and instructions are provided on that site. Enrollees also may call Berdon at (800) 443-1073.
