In his complaint, Takemoto alleged that countless insurer, self-insurer and TPA defendants violated the Medicare Secondary Payer Act by “knowingly and improperly” avoiding their “obligation to reimburse the United States for payments made to Medicare beneficiaries.” The court found that Takemoto had no evidence supporting his general claims and, as expected, dismissed his complaint.
