Dr. Kenneth Fischer, the former medical director of Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (“BCBS”), has filed a whistleblower lawsuit alleging that BCBS engaged in illegal insurance practices that hiked costs to millions of BCBS customers.

According to Dr. Fischer’s allegations, Noridian Mutual Insurance Company, which does business as BCBS, permitted some of its members to receive more benefits than other members on the same insurance plan. This was done by BCBS overpaying providers from employer accounts and not recovering those overpayments, according to the lawsuit. Dr. Fischer alleged that the practice may be costing members millions in increased premiums and other costs.
