Insurance is a valuable financial product, but it only works when it pays out your claims. In 2010, The New York Times found 1 out of every 14 health insurance claims is initially denied. In some cases, the health insurance company may consider a procedure experimental when your doctor believes it’s essential for your health and well-being.
An insurance lawyer can stand by your side and insist an insurance company pay for the benefits promised by your policy.
It’s not only private insurance companies that deny claims; the government regularly denies claims for Social Security Disability Insurance. From 1999-2009, the Office of Retirement and Disability Policy found 53% of disability claims were denied.
With both private insurance denials and Social Security Disability Insurance denials, the law guarantees you the right to an appeal. A good insurance attorney could make the difference between another denial and a successful appeal.
Many insurance attorneys do not charge any upfront fees, and in many cases, you only pay the attorney if you win the appeal. In addition, that money may come out of your award settlement which means no out-of-pocket costs to you.
