Travelers Casualty and Surety Company and The Travelers Indemnity Company
An Illinois circuit court has recently certified a class action case against Travelers Casualty and Surety Company and The Travelers Indemnity Company by Illinois medical providers who accuse the company of questionable practices to reduce medical bills and increase profits.
According to the lawsuit on behalf of medical providers, Travelers has engaged in a silent Preferred Provider Organization scheme. In a PPO, insurance companies provide financial incentives to encourage patients to seek treatment from the preferred or in-network providers. Financial incentives include, for example, reduced co-payments or greater benefit coverage for seeking treatment from preferred or in-network providers. A "silent PPO" occurs when an insurance company breaches its obligation to refer patients to medical providers, but still take the discounts the medical providers' bills. As a result, the medical provider loses revenues without gaining patients, receiving nothing in exchange for the reduced bills.
