A federal judge in New Jersey has approved a class action settlement for people whose health insurance claims for eating disorders were denied. The settlement involved a suit brought against Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, New Jersey’s largest health insurer. It will require Horizon to pay $1.2 million for previously-denied claims and lift coverage limitations for eating disorders in the future. It’s estimated that more than 500 policyholders will receive payments. Previously, the company limited treatment benefits because the disorders were classified as nonbiological in nature.
