Smith v. Health Care Service Corporation and MCG Health LLC
Filed in U.S District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Easter Division on October 31, 2019 (No 19-cv-7162).
The class-action complaint alleges that HCSC is denying medically necessary residential mental health treatment based on overly restrictive clinical guidelines developed by MCG Health (MCG). In addition to HCSC, MCG was named a co-defendant in the case. Case features 8 part-test similar to the Wit Case regarding generally accepted standards of care. See recent The Kennedy Forum blog.
