Four substance abuse treatment centers in Michigan have filed a lawsuit against an insurance company over claims that it "slashed" reimbursement rates, or did not pay, for the treatment of patients at their facilities.
Central to the dispute is the fact that the four centers are all out of network - one subsequently applied to join - but the suit claims the more than 4,000 patients affected all had coverage under a program that allowed for them to be covered.
In a statement, New York law firm Napoli Shkolnik, which represents the plaintiffs, said it is looking for compensatory and punitive damages along with disgorgement of profits.
