Federal Judge: Plaintiff Can Bring Denial Of Benefits Suit In Court

PORTLAND, Ore. - An Oregon federal judge on March 8 denied a health insurer's motion for summary judgment in a denial of benefits suit, saying a plaintiff could bring her claims in court because a review by an independent review organization did not constitute arbitration (Kelly J. Yox v. Providence Health Plan, No. 12-1348, D. Ore.; 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 32761).
