We witness improper denial of health insurance claims on a continuing basis. It has become routine practice by many insurance companies to stonewall or deny claims in order to profit at the expense of the insured.
A rejected claim can be financially devastating to the sick or injured person. In some cases, it can lead to further medical complications, even death.
An important part of our practice is fighting improper denial of health insurance claims on behalf of policyholders.
We aggressively represent the sick and disabled across the U.S. whose claims were denied under both ERISA (employer-sponsored) benefit plans and non-ERISA (individually purchased) health insurance policies.
If you are faced with a denied health insurance claim, don’t assume that the first “No” you receive is final. When your insurance company wrongfully refuses to pay the benefits you deserve, we can help. There are strong legal options we can pursue to appeal the denial.
If such improper denial of health insurance claims has happened to you, consult with us at no charge. Find out if you have a legitimate claim against your health insurance provider.
Unscrupulous insurance companies resort to all sorts of tactics to reject claims.
Insurance providers will interpret policy terms and the fine print to fit their needs. They have become masters in finding ways to deny claims, such as
- claiming that coverage is not provided in the policy
- disputing the necessity of the medical treatment and medication
- characterizing the treatment as “experimental”
- declaring pre-existing conditions (one tactic is to examine the insured’s medical history after the claim is filed to find a pre-existing condition on which to base their claim denial)
- creating unreasonable delays in processing the claim
