Anthem Blue Cross faces another suit over Obamacare doctor networks

The Los Angeles Times, July 10, 2014

Amid growing scrutiny statewide, insurance giant Anthem Blue Cross faces another consumer lawsuit over its use of narrow networks in Obamacare coverage. A group of Anthem policyholders sued California's largest for-profit health insurer Tuesday in state court, accusing the company of misrepresenting the size of its physician networks and the insurance benefits provided. A similar suit seeking class-action status was filed June 20 against Anthem, a unit of WellPoint Inc., The Times has reported. Samantha Cowart of Fallbrook sued Anthem in Los Angeles County Superior Court last month, accusing the company of misleading customers.
