Hawaii Federal Judge Says Health Insurer Plan Acted In Participants’ Interest

Mealey's (November 3, 2016, 6:48 PM EDT) -- HONOLULU — A Hawaii federal judge on Oct. 31 granted a motion for partial summary judgment on several claims filed against Kaiser Permanente Insurance Co. (KPIC) and Kaiser Foundation Health Plan Inc. (KFHP) in a class action alleging that they underpaid for emergency air transport, saying that KFHP, the plan fiduciary, discharged its duties solely in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries (Toby Sidlo, et al. v. Kaiser Permanente Insurance Co., et al., No. 1:15-cv-00269, D. Hawaii; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 150768).
