SAN FRANCISCO – A Texas woman has filed suit against a Sunnyvale insurer over claims it wrongfully denied her benefits.
Jean L. filed a complaint on April 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Netapp Inc. Group Health Plan citing violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges she sought treatment for her eating disorder in 2014 and 2015 and was denied coverage for her treatment by the defendant. The plaintiff holds Netapp Inc. Group Health Plan responsible because the defendant allegedly refused to cover plaintiff's medical expenses several times without providing any explanation to plaintiff.
The plaintiff seeks payment of health care benefits to plaintiff, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by Lisa S. Kantor and Elizabeth K. Green of Kantor & Kantor LLP in Northridge.
