Jessi MeeksOf Counsel | Fraud
Jessi Meeks joined Beasley Allen as a lawyer in the Consumer Fraud section in October 2016. She clerked for Beasley Allen beginning in March 2015 until passing the Bar. Jessi will be handling cases involving Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) antitrust multidistrict litigation (MDL).
The BCBS antitrust MDL, currently pending in the Northern District of Alabama, is a broad-sweeping group of claims against the insurance giant that is divided into two tracks, one for subscribers and one for providers. Beasley Allen is working on the provider track. The BCBS organization is comprised of separate companies that cover different geographical regions of the country. The lawsuit claims those individual companies agreed amongst themselves to stay out of other geographic regions. For example, BCBS of Alabama and BCBS of Mississippi agreed to not compete with each other for providers (hospitals and physicians) or subscribers (individual and group policyholders). Normally, competition in a certain area drives costs down with each company trying to be the lowest available. Absent competition, the companies were able to set prices for both reimbursement and premiums at any price they chose. This litigation seeks to hold the BCBS entities accountable for their anticompetitive agreements.
Jessi earned her J.D. from Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in May 2016. She was an Admissions Dean Fellow, was on the Dean’s List, served as Student Bar Association Vice President, and was a Student Representative on the Student Life Committee. She also was a member of Phi Alpha Delta.
Jessi earned her B.S. in Criminal Justice, with a minor in Leadership Studies, from Troy University, graduating cum laude in 2013. She was a member of Alpha Phi Sigma.
Jessi is a member of the Alabama State Bar (ASB) and the Young Lawyers and Women’s Sections of the ASB.
In her free time, Jessi enjoys reading, traveling and watching college football.
