NEW ORLEANS – A hospital claims it was never reimbursed by an insurance company for treatments.

St. Charles Surgical Hospital LLC filed a lawsuit on Dec. 29 against Louisiana Health Service & Indemnity Company, d/b/a Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Louisiana and Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Louisiana Inc., in Orleans Parish Civil District Court alleging breach of contract

According to the complaint, the plaintiff submitted an assignment of benefits to the defendants who ought to have issued payments for $411,761.40 to the hospital for patients' treatments. The suit states that the defendants have breached their contract because they reimbursed patients and not the hospital as required. 

The plaintiff seeks all reasonable damages, court costs, attorney fees and all appropriate relief. The plaintiff is represented by attorney James M. Williams of Chehardy, Sherman, Williams, Murray, Recile, Stakelum & Hayes LLP in Metairie.

The case has been assigned to Division F Judge Christopher J. Bruno.
