Class Action Alleges Improper Denial of Mental Health Benefits by UnitedHealthCare

In collaboration with Psych-Appeal Inc. and Zuckerman Spaeder LLP, the Maul Firm has filed a nationwide class action alleging that UnitedHealthCare improperly denies benefits for mental health care in violation of ERISA and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act. In particular, the lawsuit alleges that United's use of overly-restrictive coverage criteria for mental health services violates both the mental health parity laws and the terms of United members' insurance contracts.

Details of the class action, captioned Wit v. UnitedHealthCare Insurance Company, 3:14-cv-02346 (N.D. Cal.), are described in a press release issued by Psych-Appeal Inc.
