Hawaii Supreme Court to hear Patricia E. G. Adams v. Hawaii Medical Service Association
The Hawaii Supreme Court will hear the case of Patricia E.G. Adams v. Hawaii Medical Service Association at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 11.
"On certiorari, petitioner-appellant Patricia, in her capacity as personal representative of the estate of Brent Adams and in her personal capacity, argues that HMSA had a duty to act in good faith and fair dealing. She alleges that this duty first arose when HMSA became aware that Brent would pursue the allogenic transplant–as early as December 2005. She claims that HMSA breached this duty when it failed to notify Brent that the allogenic transplant was not covered under his insurance plan," the court states.
