Concentra Operating Corporation Subsidiary
Settles Class Action Lawsuit in Louisiana
ADDISON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Concentra announced today that one of its wholly owned
subsidiaries, FOCUS Healthcare Management, Inc., has tentatively settled a class action lawsuit in
Louisiana. The case, Gunderson, et al. v. F.A. Richard & Associates, Inc., et al., has been pending since
2004 in the state court of Louisiana, Parish of Calcasieu. The company, along with other preferred provider
organizations (PPOs), insurance companies and third-party administrators, had been sued by four
Louisiana health care providers alleging that the defendants provided legally insufficient notice under
Louisiana law of PPO discounts to which the health care providers had contractually agreed. Similar cases
were also filed against insurance carriers, PPOs and third-party administrators in the state court trial system
and the workers compensation court system. In the settlement, FOCUS has agreed to create a $12 million
settlement fund and to pay an additional $250,000 to cover actual expenses related to the administration of
the settlement of the class action. The parties to the class action have mutually agreed that the settlement
represents a compromise of disputed claims and is not an admission of liability for any purposes. The
settlement remains subject to final court approval, following notice to class members.
