MANHATTAN (CN) - A federal class action claims HIP Network Services, the largest HMO in New York state, delays payments to doctors or doesn't pay them at all. The lead plaintiff claims HIP forced her to submit repeated claims for the same services, failed to pay any of them, but claimed to have paid her twice. She says "hundreds, if not thousands" of doctors have been affected.

The class is represented by Craig Lanza with Balestriere Lanza.
