A Connecticut primary care practice has sued Cigna Corp. in federal court, alleging that the insurer wrongfully denied over $4.6 million in COVID-19 testing costs for over 4,400 patients. While the figures involved are relatively small for a national carrier, the suit could have substantial implications for the managed care industry if successful. According to Bloomberg Law, “the lawsuit is an early instance of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act being used in coronavirus coverage litigation,” and it cites new COVID-19 relief laws including the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
