You need to be aware that on June 18, 2012, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana preliminarily approved the settlement. The amount of the WellPoint Anthem Class Action Lawsuit Settlement is $90 million and Anthem has agreed to pay this amount. If you want to take part, you do not have to do anything at this time. You also need to know that if you decide to participate, you will not have to pay any legal fees or expenses. The attorneys will usually be paid from the settlement funds. A certain amount is usually set aside for this. Once the attorneys’ fees and other expenses have been deducted, the rest of the money will be divided among all the eligible participants.
If you wish to be excluded from this settlement, then you must have had submitted a written request that you want to be excluded by April 8, 2010. If you did not do it then, you cannot do this now. It is too late. Your only other option is to take part. Actually just by doing nothing in this case, you are considered a part of the settlement and will get some kind of compensation. The Final Approval Hearing has been scheduled on October 25, 2012 at 2 p.m. This will be held in the United States Courthouse in Indianapolis Indiana. You can attend this if you want but you do not have to. Some people feel that they have to go if they want to get any money. That is not true. You do not have to travel at all. You can just sit at home and still get the compensation. If you have your own lawyers and want your lawyers to represent you during the hearing, you can have them attend on your behalf.
You need to be aware that the settlement has not been approved by the court yet. Only after it has been approved will you get your money. However, if there are appeals, this process might take even longer. The appeals process can take months. So do not expect payment as soon as it is approved. You can get the latest information at the settlement website here. Keep checking to find out what is going on. You will be able to get the latest information on the landing page or the front page of the website.
My friend once filed a claim for a class action lawsuit settlement. She was really excited because she thought she was going to get rich. However, when the check finally arrived in the mail, she got a shock. The check was only for $20. She was expecting a few more zeros. Since the settlement amount was millions of dollars, she thought she would be getting a lot more. So please be aware that even though the amount for this case is $90 million, you are not going to get a lot of money and get rich. So do not quit your job. This is not a lottery win. Millions of people are eligible to get this compensation so what each individual gets is rather small. Keep checking for the latest updates. Right now the trial has been taken off the calendar. You might want to check for when this will happen.
