Employers file briefs with court in Blues antitrust settlementPosted On: Mar. 31, 2023 10:00 AM CST
Two court briefs filed March 24, including one from Home Depot Inc., could further delay payments from the $2.67 billion Blue Cross & Blue Shield Association antitrust settlement, the Erie Times-News reports. It's just the latest development in the settlement, which was reached in October 2020 in U.S. District Court in Alabama after more than 35 Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance plans, including Highmark Inc., were sued for violating antitrust laws. Home Depot is concerned the agreement will prevent national employers who chose not to participate in the settlement from filing similar claims in the future.
