After six years of litigation and a four-week jury trial, the jury awarded the Chipps family more than $1.03 million in compensatory damages and $78.5 million in punitive damages.  The trial examined Humana’s internal documents and its abrupt termination of its managed care program for 100 catastrophically ill children in Florida; a termination that was in complete violation of its own policies and procedures. This landmark lawsuit uncovered widespread fraud at Humana, including the payment of bonuses to physicians and nurses based on the number of medical claims they denied each month.  The American Association for Justice placed Chipps v. Humana on its list of "Cases That Made a Difference” for healthcare.
