Cigna faces a class-action lawsuit alleging the insurance giant overcharged its members by more than 10 times the amount the insurer paid for certain prescription drug costs. The original lawsuit was brought in October 2016 and recently moved to the discovery phase when U.S. District Judge Warren Eginton denied Cigna’s motion to dismiss, finding that Cigna “intentionally sought to charge excess amounts for prescription drugs and that it required the pharmacies to conceal from the insureds the amounts of the prescription drug costs.”
