AzHHA Affiliated Partners Program (APP) is pleased to announce its class-action claims-recovery service that aims to identify and recover for AzHHA members class action claim opportunities.  Historically AzHHA Members have left money on the table by not responding to settled class action lawsuits.

A Recent Case Study

In a recent class action settlement related to wholesale food purchases (In re U.S. Foodservice Pricing Litigation), only 4 of 22 eligible AzHHA members filed claims.  While the members who filed claims recovered more than $88,000, there were 22 additional AzHHA members who, based on the defendants’ data, had qualifying claims in that case but failed to file claims.  Had those 22 AzHHA members filed claims, they would have been eligible to receive at least $150,000 in settlement funds.

How to Participate

In order to help our members identify and pursue claims please click the link directing you to the available settled class actions suits.  Should you chose to participate, or have any questions,  please contact John Koeneke, Vice President, AzHHA APP for the necessary forms and information. You may also contact  Jim Haynes, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, for any questions.
