Justice Preliminarily Approved: Aetna settlement notices soon to be in the mail

Last week, a federal district court in Philadelphia granted preliminary approval of the $17 million settlement in our class action lawsuit against Aetna.

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 those on PrEP, a pre-exposure prophylactic that prevents HIV. A settlement was reached on January 16, 2018.

Now that the court has issued a preliminary approval, settlement notices and claim forms will be mailed to anyone who received the faulty mailing. Please check our website aidslawpa.org at the end of May for a timeline on the mailing of the notice. Once you receive the notice and claim forms, please complete as appropriate.

If you received the faulty mailing and have updated your address since July 2017, please contact us at aetnaclass@aidslawpa.org.

As always, if you have questions, please contact us at aetnaclass@aidslawpa.org or 215-587-9377.
