STATE OF MAINE
Consumers for Affordable Health Care filed a motion with the Superintendent on February 22, 2000 seeking to compel Anthem to respond to certain discovery requests. Anthem responded on February 23rd.
A conference of counsel was held on Friday, February 25th at which counsel for Anthem appeared and participated. No representative from Consumers for Affordable Health Care appeared although Robert Goldman, Esq. of the Maine Senior Citizens Council provided some argument in favor of the motion.
After consideration of the written filings made by Anthem and Consumers for Affordable Health Care as well as oral arguments presented at the conference of counsel, the motion to compel of Consumers for Affordable Health Care is DENIED. The request made by Consumers for Affordable Health Care identified in the motion lack relevance, are unduly burdensome, and, in the case of request #6, speculative.
Anthems counsel did agree at the conference to provide information directing the parties to where, in the documents filed to date, responses to requests 13, 14 and 24 may be located. The information already on file, while not necessarily relating to Anthems practices in other states, should provide intervenors with some idea of how Anthem expects Anthem Health Plans of Maine to operate post-acquisition.
PER ORDER OF THE SUPERINTENDENT
