By Celeste Bott (July 8, 2022, 4:14 p.m. EDT) – An Illinois federal judge has ruled that an insurance company was wrong to limit dental practices with offices across the country to a one-time payment of $25,000 for disease contamination coverage, saying each government shutdown order in 10 states and jurisdictions they operated in were separate events that should have triggered coverage.
Dental Experts LLC and other affiliated dental practices in 10 states and jurisdictions were forced to halt non-essential operations under various government orders related to the coronavirus pandemic, according to the lawsuit, which Massachusetts Bay Insurance Co. dismissed in the Northern District of Illinois in October 2020.
