Geico Auto Insurance Class Action Settlement (Arkansas Only)
Class Members include individuals who received medical treatment as a result of an automobile accident and (a) who were insured under an automobile insurance policy that was issued in Arkansas by GEICO and pursuant to which GEICO made a Med Pay/PIP payment to a medical provider on behalf of the insured; and (b) who settled a bodily injury claim with a third party arising out of the automobile accident “pro se” and without the assistance of an attorney; and (c) as a result of that settlement, GEICO received a subrogation payment as reimbursement for a Med Pay/PIP payment between the dates of Nov. 1, 2008 and April 3, 2015.
Class Members who file a valid Claim Form will receive a payment not to exceed 100% of the amount GEICO received in Med Pay/PIP subrogation on their claim. If the number of eligible claims exceeds the amount available in the class action settlement fund, distributions will be made on a pro rata basis.
