Elevance’s $14.8 Billion Suit Against Express Scripts Reaches Appeals Phase

Part of a long-running lawsuit filed by Elevance Health, Inc. against The Cigna Group, over what Elevance considers inappropriate contract practices by Cigna’s Express Scripts PBM, entered mediation mandated by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, according to court documents and Elevance’s latest 10-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Elevance was seeking to recover $14.8 billion in damages and is now appealing a district court judge’s dismissal of its remaining claim.

David Kaufman, an attorney at Laurus Law Group LLC, says that the mediation mandated by the Second Circuit is unlikely to do much to satisfy Elevance.
