Extreme overcharging for medical services is the basis for a class action lawsuit filed against CIGNA Health and Life Insurance in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut.  The class is comprised of patients who allege CIGNA and a home-care service provider, CareCentrix, were unjustly enriched through the fraudulent inflation of copayments and coinsurance paid by their patients.  One particularly egregious example of overcharging cited in the lawsuit involved a blood test billed to a patient at the rate of $2,000, under the pretense that it cost the insurance company $17,000.  The actual cost: $471.
