(Bloomberg) -- Health insurer Cigna Corp. (NYSE:CI) has reached a settlement with the state of New York over allegations that it unlawfully denied its members treatment for eating disorders.
The insurer settled civil claims that it denied hundreds of requests by insureds for nutrition counseling, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said today. Under New York’s mental health coverage parity law, insurers must provide coverage of mental illnesses that is at least equal to coverage for other conditions, he said.
