Patients sue Anthem over ER policy

Patients have filed a class action lawsuit against Anthem Inc. in a U.S. District Court in California because the company has failed to fulfill its fiduciary duty under ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act). The lawsuit says that, “By implementing a policy to no longer cover emergency room services for care the company later deems non-emergent, Anthem has essentially required patients to act as medical professionals when they experience urgent medical events.”
