This excerpt taken from the UNH 10-K filed Feb 11, 2009.
The Parties agree that all payments from the Settlement Account relating to claims released by this Settlement Agreement shall be paid directly to releasing Settlement Class Members. In the event that a Releasor has assigned Released Claims to another but also receives benefits under this Settlement Agreement and the Plan of Allocation, the assignment shall be withdrawn.
Any Attorneys Fees awarded by the Court shall be paid by the Claims Administrator solely from the Cash Settlement Fund. Defendants shall not be obligated to pay any Attorneys Fees or expenses incurred by or on behalf of any Releasor in connection with the Actions. In the event the Court approves of the payment of Attorneys Fees to Settlement Class Counsel prior to the Effective Date, Settlement Class Counsel shall secure such payment of Attorneys Fees by obtaining a satisfactory letter of credit from Settlement Class Counsel.
