Reed Armstrong has defended several types of class actions. For example, actions by private Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs), typically involve allegations by a health care provider that their charges for services were reduced to the contracted rate with an insurance company under medical payments coverage without the benefit of patient referral to them as a preferred provider. Class actions under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227, often arise where a business transmits unsolicited advertisement facsimiles in bulk. Statutory penalties are severe. We have also defended class actions for automobile paint contamination, common law fraud and consumer fraud arising out of non-negotiable costs of extended warranties and insurance policy claims practices.
