BREAKING: ObamaCare Insurer Gets Slapped With Class-Action Lawsuit

A class-action lawsuit has been launched against ObamaCare insurer Centene for allegedly misleading enrollees about its benefits.

From The Hill: The insurance carrier Centene misled enrollees about the benefits of its ObamaCare exchange plans and offered far skimpier coverage than promised, according to a class-action lawsuit filed Thursday.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington state, claims that customers who bought Centene’s ObamaCare plans had trouble finding in-network doctors or hospitals, and often found that doctors who were advertised as in-network actually were not.


ObamaCare requires plans to meet certain minimum requirements.

Centene covers about 10 percent of the ObamaCare individual market and is one of the largest insurance carrier that participates on the exchanges.

As many other insurers have pared back their ObamaCare exchange plans, or completely left the market, Centene has expanded. In some areas of the country, Centene is the only insurer offering plans for ObamaCare customers.
