Blue Cross Blue Shield has started notifying class members via email about the recent subscriber settlement. Class representatives in the Blue Cross Blue Shield antitrust lawsuit for subscribers reached a $2.67 billion settlement in October 2020.
Subscribers in the class action took issue with licensing agreements between the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association and Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies. This settlement not only entitles policyholders to compensation but also requires the company to modify its business practices in light of the alleged anti-competition agreements.
If you were enrolled in a Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance or administrative services plan between 2008 and 2020, you may be eligible as a class member to receive compensation from this settlement. Subscribers can go online to the BCBS Settlement website to file a claim form or can do so by mail before November 5, 2021. Visit the BCBS settlement website (https://www.bcbssettlement.com/) for more information if you believe that you qualify as a class member in this settlement.
