Florida emergency physicians will argue in Miami federal court today that a proposed $180 million Blue Cross and Blue Shield settlement in a physician-brought class action case should not block their separate Palm Beach Circuit Court class action based on a state reimbursement law.

Southern District of Florida Judge Federico A. Moreno, after four years of litigation, thousands of pages of discovery and expert testimony, and countless hearings and teleconferences, will hold a hearing to consider the proposed settlement between dozens of Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans and 850,000 doctors around the country. A final fairness hearing will be held in the fall.
