Class-action suit filed against Nationwide Insurance

Seattle Times, April 17, 2009

Attorneys for more than 400 plaintiffs filed a class-action lawsuit against Nationwide Insurance this week, claiming that the company sold Washington consumers illegal health plans that left them with insufficient coverage. The suit alleges that the insurer "unfairly and deceptively" sold fixed indemnity plans, which feature lump-sump payment limits. Plaintiffs said the plans do not comply with laws requiring certain minimum benefits.
