Denied A Health Insurance Claim?
Back Your Claim with Our Los Angeles Medical Insurance Attorneys
Your health insurance policy is supposed to be there to help you pay for medical bills. Whether you get into a medical emergency or just need to schedule a routine checkup, the cost of treatment should be reduced noticeably through your health insurance. What are you supposed to do, then, if your health insurance claim is denied?
Reasons why your health insurance claim could be denied include:
- Insurer believes treatment was not medically necessary.
- Delay or denial to authorize certain treatments, like specialist care, MRIs, etc.
- Insurance provider claims procedures were too investigational or experimental.
