CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Tracy was referred to me by a prominent D.C. litigator so my expectations for her were high.  And, I must say, she’s exceeded those expectations.

I couldn’t be more grateful about how you and your firm handled my case. You worked out the best option and solution for me. I’ll definitely refer you and your firm to anyone I know that may need a lawyer in the future.

FIRM NEWS

Disposable Contact Lenses Price Fixed?

0

A recent lawsuit alleges a conspiracy among manufacturers Coopervision, Inc., Alcon Laboratories, Inc., Bausch & Lomb Inc., and Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc., with distributor ABB/Con-Cise Optical Group LLC, to fix the prices of disposable contact lenses.  These four manufacturers are alleged to hold 97% of the market for disposable contact lenses.  It is further alleged that they use ABB/Con-Cise, the largest distributor, to hold their monopoly through the use of price floors.  Price floors typically establish minimum prices the reseller can advertise or sell a particular good.  It is alleged that if a retailer violates the price floor set by these four manufacturers, then they allegedly threaten to cease supplying that retailer with disposable contact lenses. The lawsuit alleges that the purpose of these price floors was to artificially keep the price of contact lenses to consumers high and stifle competition between independent eye care professional retailers on the one hand and big-box stores with vision care centers (e.g., Wal-Mart), internet retailers (e.g., 1-800 CONTACTS), and warehouse clubs (e.g., Costco), which typically charge about 30% less for the same contact lenses sold by independent eye care professional retailers.

Anthem Data Breach

0

Anthem, Inc., one of the nation’s largest health insurers, recently suffered from a hack affecting approximately 80 million individuals.  The hackers stole personal identify information (“PII”) and personal health information (“PHI”) including medical identification numbers social security numbers, addresses and email addresses, which as the New York Times, notes could be used for medical fraud.  In response, Anthem has offered 24 months of identity theft repair and credit monitoring services.  It has not offered any health insurance fraud monitoring.  AS CNBC notes, criminals can use the information stolen at hospitals, emergency rooms and pharmacies to receive care and prescriptions, racking up charges and wrecking victims’ medical records.  The medical fraud risk is particularly insidious “because any medical care a criminal receives while using a victim’s ID number gets added to the victim’s health record—and may go unnoticed for months or even years. The effects ‘can be life-threatening,’ as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services notes on its website.”  The basis for this risk is that the victim’s medical care can cause doctors at emergency rooms, who electronically share data, to provide incorrect medication,  fail to recognize risks of procedures, etc.  Moreover, a person health insurance premium could also rise based on the medical care, surgeries, and hospital visits in a given year–care that they themselves did not receive.

Lawsuits have been filed.  If you have been a victim of the Anthem data breach, contact us to learn more about your legal rights.
