A New York district court has granted a motion to compel arbitration of matters arising out of general liability “fronting” policies issued by member companies of AIG. The policies were issued to Building Materials Holding Corporation (“BMHC”) and obligated AIG to “front” litigation costs incurred by BMHC’s additional insureds to defend third-party claims. BMHC was then required to reimburse AIG for such costs. The parties’ duties were further defined in a separate Payment Agreement (“Agreement”).  More on Court's Decision Here>

When a business gets sued it looks to its various insurance policies for coverage and a defense.  But sometimes the insurance policy purchased does not fit the coverage sought.  That was the case in the Seventh Circuit where a restaurant company sought coverage for a claim brought by a television provider for damages when the restaurant used a non-commercial subscription to show programming on screens in the restaurant. More on Defamation Endorsement Here>

In a widely-anticipated decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit recently held that United HealthCare violated its customers’ plan provisions when it engaged in the practice of “cross-plan offsetting.” Peterson et al. v. UnitedHealth Group, Inc., et al., Eighth Circuit Appeal No. 17-1744 (January 15, 2019).  This practice, instituted by United HealthCare in 2007, involved a procedure in which it reduced or eliminated claim payments made to out-of-network providers to make up for overpayments to those providers on different claims – even if the claims were submitted for different health care plans. More on Peterson v. UnitedHealthCare Here>
