Aetna seeks federal court sanction of Mednax for supposedly damaging evidence

Aetna has actually asked a federal court to provide sanctions versus a big neonatal services provider, alleging the company failed to safeguard records relevant to a $50 million billing conflict.

The Hartford, Conn.-based insurer submitted a memorandum to the U.S. District Court of Pennsylvania on Monday, stating that Mednax failed to conserve thousands of e-mails related to claims that it was overcharging Aetna for services, despite knowledge of Aetna’s legal complaint. Mednax’s internal billing and coding system, called BabySteps, instantly erases e-mails after 90-days unless lawyers put a “lawsuits hold” on the correspondence.

Charlie Lynch, senior vice president of finance and technique at Mednax, stated the business disputes the claims leveled in Aetna’s movement and plans to submit a brief in response soon.

“Mednax has not ruined or otherwise spoliated evidence in this case, which is itself without basis,” Lynch composed in an e-mail.

Aetna decreased to talk about the pending lawsuit.

According to Aetna’s grievance, in January, 2015, the insurance company contacted Mednax over a suspicion that the business was exaggerating the severity of the scientific condition of its newborn patients and buying unneeded tests.

Over the next year, Aetna stated it fulfilled with Mednax several times to share a statistical analysis of the company’s billing practices. In reaction, the lawsuit mentions that Mednax employed numerous outside lawyers, who satisfied with Mednax’s internal counsel to discuss lawsuits holds, to name a few things.

Aetna states legal representatives informed the insurer that pausing the system that immediately erases emails “slipped through the fractures.”

“Mednax, an advanced and publicly traded business, can not prevent considerable spoliation sanctions simply by saying that the concern ‘slipped through the cracks,’ particularly given that Mednax declines to even reveal the content of the alleged investigation that led to this conclusion,” the problem reads.

As a result of Mednax deleting the e-mails, Aetna said it is “severely prejudiced” and asked the court to implement adverse inference, which suggests it may hold Mednax’s silence against it.
