Under the terms of the Settlement, Quest will pay for a Settlement Fund of $195,000. The Settlement Fund will provide cash reimbursement of monetary losses as well as separate payments for those whose HIV test results were disclosed to class members who submit valid and timely Claims.  The Settlement Fund will also pay court-approved Attorneys’ Fees, Costs, and Expenses; and a Service Award for the named Plaintiff. Quest will separately pay for the costs of sending notice to the class and administering the Settlement. In exchange, Settlement Class Members will release any and all claims they may have against Quest regarding the Incident.
