  Title Trigon lawsuit: Chiropractors seeking fairness, compensation: An interview with George McAndrews, Esq. [interview]
Journal J Am Chiropr Assoc. 2000 Nov;37(11):29-31
Peer Review No
Publication Type Interview

In yet another major action to defend the rights of chiropractors, the American Chiropractic Association has filed suit against Trigon Blue Cross Blue Shield of Virginia and the national Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, raising allegations of racketeering, extortion, mail fraud, antitrust violations, and other state and federal law violations. Attorney George McAndrews, who led the chiropractic profession to victory in the Wilk vs. AMA case in 1972, and who is also guiding the ACA's ongoing lawsuit against the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), is once again at the helm of a groundbreaking legal action. McAndrews, a patent trial lawyer who boasts more than 25 relatives who are chiropractors (including his own daughter), talks here with JACA about the Trigon suit, including what policies spurred ACA to file suit, what legal strategies he's using, and how the case may unfold.
