Employees will soon receive class action settlement mailing

May 27, 2010

Purdue employees who were covered in the past through a Purdue medical plan administered by UnitedHealthcare or UMR will soon receive information through their home mail about a class action settlement. The settlement affects a broad range of medical plans and is not specific to Purdue.

"We’re aware that the mailing will be coming, but we don’t have the ability to answer questions about the settlement," said Mike Hanson, medical benefits administrator in Staff Benefits. 

Individual Purdue employees can choose to complete the paperwork and participate in the class action or they may choose not to participate.

The class action settlement is being administered by Berdon Claims Administration. Employees with questions about the settlement form they receive should contact Berdon using the following information:
