U.S. Chamber files amicus brief regarding certification of medical liability class action

July 16, 2010

NCLC urged the Colorado Supreme Court to reject class certification for plaintiffs alleging they were not fully reimbursed for medical claims submitted to State Farm. State Farm determined its reimbursement rates using information from similar medical procedures conducted in the plaintiffs' geographic area. In its brief, NCLC argued that the appeals court failed to satisfy state and federal standards of review for class certification, and that the court should have allowed State Farm to present evidence on how each medical claim is reviewed and paid. NCLC warned that the class certification could pressure State Farm and other companies to settle non-meritorious claims and could draw class actions to Colorado.
