Trial begins over lawsuit targeting Anthem Blue Cross

Los Angeles Times, February 23, 2010

Anthem Blue Cross refused to pay for a California produce merchant to get a liver transplant in Indiana because the company wanted to save money, a lawyer for the patient told jurors. But a lawyer for Anthem argued that the patient was not sick enough to qualify for an exception to his policy's requirement that transplants be performed in Blue Cross-contracted hospitals in California. The high-profile trial is expected to shed light on how Anthem Blue Cross, which covers about 8 million Californians, decides what medical care to cover and what to deny, the Los Angeles Times reports.
