This website concerns a case called Moya v. HealthPort Technologies LLC (now known as Ciox Health LLC), Case No. 13CV2642 (the “Lawsuit”), that was filed in the Milwaukee County Circuit Court, Wisconsin (the “Court”).
A class action settlement in the Lawsuit will resolve claims against Ciox Health LLC (“Ciox”), HealthPort Technologies LLC (“HealthPort”) (now part of Ciox), IOD Incorporated (“IOD”) (now part of Ciox), and Aurora Healthcare, Inc (“Aurora”) (collectively, the “Defendants”). This Settlement affects all Persons who, from July 1, 2011 through August 1, 2019: (i) paid basic, retrieval and/or certification fee(s) charged by Ciox, IOD, Aurora or Columbia St. Mary’s (“CSM”), in violation of Wis. Stat. §146.83(3f)(b)(4) - (5); and (ii) have not already been reimbursed for such basic, retrieval, and/or certification fees.
The Lawsuit contends that the Defendants charged fees above those permitted by Wisconsin law for certain categories of medical records requests—specifically, basic certification and retrieval fees. The Lawsuit seeks return of the basic, certification and retrieval fees, exemplary damages, and certain other remedies.
Defendants deny liability.
To settle the case, Defendants have agreed to pay each Class Member who submits a Claim for basic, retrieval and/or certification fees twice the total amount of any basic, retrieval and/or certification fees paid by the Class Member to Ciox, HealthPort, Aurora, IOD, or Columbia St. Mary’s. The average of such charges for each individual Class Member is approximately $22.58. Ciox will provide funds up to $35,421,442 to pay all Valid Claims. Defendants have also agreed to pay a Service Award of $15,000 for named Plaintiff Carolyn Moya and $15,000 for named Plaintiff Timothy Rave.
Defendants have also agreed to pay for the costs associated with the administration of the case, including the claims process.
The lawyers who brought the Lawsuit will ask the Court for up to $8,000,000 in Attorneys’ Fees and Expenses, which will be paid by Defendants.
Your legal rights are affected whether you act or do not act. Read the Notice carefully.
