The ARDC has accused a lawyer of defrauding Blue Cross to obtain maternity coverage. The ARDC alleges that the lawyer wrongfully claimed to be employed by a company where her father worked.
Comment: if true, the allegations are serious and will merit discipline. This illustrates the trouble people have in getting insurance in the United States, particularly those who work in small firms. That difficulty, however, is no excuse and Blue Cross has a right to be made whole.
