Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC Announces That a Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed on Behalf of Investors in Coventry Health Care, Inc.

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2009) - Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland on behalf of purchasers of Coventry Health Care, Inc. ("Coventry" or the "Company") (NYSE: CVH) who purchased shares between February 9, 2007 and October 22, 2008, inclusive (the "Class Period"). The lawsuit alleges, among other things, that Coventry misrepresented the Company's prospects for growth relating to its Medicare Private-Fee-For-Services Initiative. According to the complaint, these misrepresentations caused the Company's stock price to trade at artificially high prices during the Class Period.

Fistel, Jr., Esq., or Marshall P. Dees, Esq. via email at mfistel@holzerlaw.com, or mdees@holzerlaw.com, or via toll-free telephone at (888) 508-6832.
