About State of New York

While MSSNY believes that the main value of the Settlement Agreement is the Prospective Relief, including the promises CIGNA has made to change its business practices going forward, the Settlement does provide a minimum of $70 million in damages to physician class members. In order to preserve the physician's ability to submit claims for retrospective monetary payments, MSSNY strongly urges physicians and medical groups to retain billing and medical records relating to medical services provided to CIGNA members - dating back to August 4, 1990, the beginning of the class period.
