Matt Lavin Quoted in Law360 Article Discussing Reprocessing of Claims in United Behavioral Health Class Action

AGG Healthcare Litigation partner Matt Lavin was quoted in an August 25, 2023, Law360 article titled “9th Circ. Reopens Door to reprocessing in UBH Battle.”

The article discusses the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit’s third version of its ruling in a class action against United Behavioral Health. While the decision largely favored the insurer, it reopened the door for health plan participants to demand claim reprocessing on a class basis.

Matt provided insight his insight on the decision, noting that Wit v. United Behavioral Health in particular is a case to watch.

“What they are basically saying is that yes, you can have reprocessing,” Matt said. “And yes, you can have it for a class, if you can show that everyone in the class might be entitled to benefits. Which Wit wasn’t able to say.”
