In August of 2017, AIDS Law Project, LAC, and Berger & Montague, P.C. filed a federal class action lawsuit against Aetna after a faulty mailing revealed the HIV-related information of thousands of its customers. The plaintiffs included people taking medication to treat HIV as well as people who, like Beckett, take PrEP, a pre-exposure prophylactic that prevents HIV. A settlement on behalf of class members was reached on January 16, 2018.
On June 1, Notices of Settlement were sent to class members fully detailing the settlement terms.
Everyone who received the notice is entitled to a base payment and need not take further action.
Class members who suffered financial or non-financial harm as a result of the faulty mailing must submit a claim form by mail or online by September 29, 2018. Details on how and where to submit the claim form can be found at: https://www.beckettprivacyclassaction.com/ or by calling the AIDS Law Project at 215-587-9377 or emailing email@example.com.
