Anthem Lawsuit Alleges Refusal To Pay For Medically Necessary Drugs
Audet & Partners, LLP has brought a class action lawsuit against Anthem, Inc., on behalf of subscribers who were entitled to, and denied by Anthem, “medically necessary prescriptions” as prescribed by their physicians.
In the Complaint filed on July 15, 2016 in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, it is alleged that Anthem has engaged in a systemic practice of denying coverage for medically necessary drugs in many situations where no comparable generic alternative exists, and where the subscriber’s doctor has deemed the drug as medically necessary. As a result, subscribers have been left having to decide whether to: (1) purchase the generic substitute approved by Anthem; or (2) follow the professional advice of their doctors and be faced with, in many cases, exorbitant drug costs, the cost of which must be entirely borne by the subscriber.
