In 2007, several class action lawsuits were filed on the behalf of the Subscriber Class and the Provider Class accusing Aetna of providing insufficient reimbursement for ONET covered services by using the Ingenix databases and certain other policies to make reimbursement determinations. In December 2012, the class agreed to settle all claims against Aetna in exchange for a settlement involving payments by Aetna of up to $120 million. This settlement was terminated by Aetna in March 2014. At this time, the litigation is continuing. It is impossible to predict the outcome; however, it is possible that money may become available to eligible class members of one or both classes if a new settlement is reached with Aetna in the future.
