NYC Retirees: Co-pay Class Action

On December 1, 2022—along with co-counsel Walden Macht & Haran—we filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of 183,000 senior citizens and disabled first-responders against NYC and EmblemHealth/GHI for illegally charging these retirees a co-pay every time they see a doctor, get a diagnostic test, undergo a procedure, or receive physical therapy. Although many people have to pay co-pays—depending on their insurance plan—these retirees do not. Their insurance contract does not permit it. More than $55 million in unlawful co-pays have been charged to these seniors since January 1, 2022.
