    I had a $1,000,000 policy with HealthExtras Disability program for several years. I believe I applied for the policy through JC Penney. I want to be part of the class action suit, but cannot find my policy info., but for your lawfirm to send this info. maybe you have it?

    ADMIN – Hi Brenda,

    We are not a law firm and we did not send any information. You may want to contact healthExtras directly and see if they still have your records.
