Anthem Must Face ERISA Suit Over Mental Health Coverage

A New York federal judge has ruled that Anthem must face a proposed class action claiming the insurer and its subsidiary denied mental health treatment coverage under guidelines that policyholders say are too restrictive. This decision keeps alive the class action that was filed in 2020 amd that alleges Anthem and its entities used flawed and restrictive guidelines that violate ERISA when determining coverage for mental health.
