Illegally Collecting Money from Enrollees’ Personal Injury Awards

On October 19, 2005, the Connecticut Attorney General announced a settlement with Health Net resolving charges that the company “illegally collected money from its enrollees’ personal injury awards.” The charges were brought because, “under state law, insurance companies that cover the cost of medical care in personal injury cases are prohibited from later recovering those costs from enrollees who receive money through personal injury settlements or judgments.” The company agreed to pay 98 of its members a total of $166,671.
