Health Insurance Claims
California Wrongfully Denied Insurance Claims Attorneys
If your health insurance claim was wrongfully denied, our insurance bad faith attorneys can help.
The labyrinth of insurers and types of health insurance can make filing a health insurance claim intimidating. If you are lucky, your employer offers a health care plan that is affordable and comprehensive. If you are unlucky, your employer’s plan is costly and offers minimal coverage, or your employer does not offer you a plan. You may have had to to resort to buying a private insurance policy, something that is often an expensive route to take, but necessary to avoid incurring huge debts should you, or a loved one on your policy become sick, need surgery, or require some other medical treatment or care.
Regardless of how you obtained heath insurance coverage, you are paying for a promise — your insurer must pay for valid health care claims that you submit. When your insurer refuses to pay a claim or delays in paying a claim, you are not receiving the benefit of the bargain. The practice of wrongfully or improperly denying or handling medical health insurance claims, or rescinding (retroactively cancelling) your health insurance when you file a claim is illegal in California.
Unfortunately, insurance companies often prey on consumer ignorance about what their policies entitle them to, and insurance laws. Too many policyholders simply accept an unfair claims decision as final when they do not have to.
Our Insurance Bad Faith Law Firm Fights Hard to Resolve Health Care Claim Disputes
The attorneys at the Los Angeles area law firm of Donahue & Horrow fight back hard against insurance companies to help clients obtain coverage on health care claims throughout the state of California.
Our lawyers understand that when medical claims are wrongfully denied, you may already be suffering physically or emotionally and we do not want you to suffer financially because of unfair or illegal insurance company tactics. For this reason, we offer a free, no-obligation legal consultation so we can help you understand all the things your insurance company is not telling you — the benefits you may be entitled to receive, and if you have a valid claim against your insurance company for acting in bad faith. We can tell you your rights, and help you decide a best course of action. We take all cases on a contingency fee basis — you pay no lawyer’s fees unless and until we obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf.
The firm has pursued health care insurance disputes against Kaiser HMO facilities for workers of all trades and professions, including government employees and employees of religious organizations or religious-affiliated entities, such as church-run hospitals. In disputes where ERISA law does not apply, an experienced non-ERISA claims attorney at our law firm can pursue damages in compensation for failure to pay insurance benefits.
