COCSA Joins ERISA Class Action Against UnitedHealth Group For Improper Recoupment Abuses
February 14, 2011, 6:26 AM
The Congress Of Chiropractic State Associations (COCSA) has voted to join a national ERISA class action filed by Pomerantz Haudek Grossman & Gross LLP, one of the nation's preeminent class action law firms, against UnitedHealth Group. In the action, COCSA will be representing its members, State Chiropractic associations in all 50 states, in combating alleged ERISA violations in overpayment recoupment abuses. We at the ChiroCode Institute applaud the vision of Jin Zhou, president of ErisaClaim, as well as COCSA, for taking the reigns with this issue to take it to the next level in supporting the Chiropractic profession in advocating for appropriate reimbursement for chiropractic care.
The ChiroCode Institute has been a supporter of COCSA for years, and wholeheartedly stand behind their decision in this battle. We have been offering and will continue to offer training on ERISA via webinars (available in ChiroCode Premium Support). Enhanced information about ERISA has also been added to the 2011 ChiroCode DeskBook. We also offer products to better understand ERISA at www.chirocode.com/store.
We will continue to help everyone understand the implications of this and other ongoing ERISA cases and how they affect our practices in future ChiroCode Alerts and ChiroCode Hot Topics newsletters.
