ABC News

A Santa Monica-based advocacy organization filed two separate class-action lawsuits against Blue Shield and Cigna, claiming the health insurance companies misrepresented their coverage in order to make a larger profit.

The lawsuits, filed by Consumer Watchdog of Santa Monica, alleges the two insurance companies delayed enrollment in Affordable Care Act plans, violating state law and misrepresenting doctor and hospital networks to boost sales during Covered California’s open enrollment, which ended on March 31.
