Carolinas HealthCare may face more legal woes

Share this:


Along with  the federal and North Carolina state government’s pending antitrust suit against Carolinas HealthCare System, based  in Charlotte, N.C., the San Francisco-based law firm of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein seeks Charlotte-area residents who could sue for related damages.

The governments’ suit alleges that Carolinas Healthcare used its market power to force restrictions in contracts with every major health insurer in the area, thus boosting healthcare costs by reducing  competition.

Although Lieff Cabraser’s  investigation is preliminary, it could lead to a class-action suit.

Carolinas has filed a motion  to dismiss the governments’ suit on the grounds that the U.S. Department of Justice hasn’t  provided evidence that the contract provisions caused higher insurance-premium prices or  financially marginalized other area hospitals in the market.
