Aetna Suing Bayer over Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, and Beyaz?
Aetna has started sending letters to women who used Aetna insurance to obtain Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, and Beyaz. They are asking women if they suffered a blood clot, stroke, pulmonary embolism, or gallbladder injury while taking these drugs.
Why is Aetna asking about Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella and Beyaz? Should you respond to the letter? Insurance companies may be entitled to be reimbursed for the prescription medication coverage they provided if it is determined that these drugs increase the risk of blood clots or gallbladder removal, and in fact caused injury in an individual case.
Women should not, however, rely on Aetna to pursue any litigation on their behalf. The insurance company has different priorities and will be acting to recovery money for them, not for you. Women who have suffered injury as a result of taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella should understand the legal remedies available to them. If you or someone you love developed a blood clot, stroke, or pulmonary embolism while taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, please contact Lopez McHugh for a FREE consultation with a qualified and trusted attorney who can answer your questions and ensure your legal rights are protected. Call today because if you wait too long, you may be barred from recovering for your injuries by your state’s time limits.
