Anthem Blue Cross should reimburse California man for transplant, jury says

Los Angeles Times, March 16, 2010
A Los Angeles jury concluded that Anthem Blue Cross should cover the cost of an out-of-state liver transplant that a California man paid for after the insurer balked. In addition, the jury ordered Blue Cross to pay plaintiff Ephram Nehme's legal expenses. Blue Cross approved Nehme's liver transplant in late 2006, and he was on the waiting list at UCLA Medical Center. But the company refused to pay when Nehme decided to have the operation in Indiana, where wait times are far shorter than in California.
