How Are Medical Insurance Disputes Resolved?
A seasoned lawyer has several avenues at his or her disposal to attempt to settle a health insurance dispute. Your health insurance policy needs to be carefully reviewed first to determine the procedures that must be followed to ensure that coverage is provided.
The next step is usually to contact your health insurance company. In some cases, by submitting additional documentation, the claim may be approved. If a denial of coverage is still made, your attorney will often be able to file an administrative appeal, and submit additional evidence and argument to resolve the dispute. If the appeal does not provide a satisfactory result, the lawyer may represent a client with a health insurance dispute in court. In order to minimize their potential losses, healthcare companies sometimes include arbitration clauses in their contracts. These clauses require consumers to submit their claims to arbitration, in which a third-party arbitrator has the power to decide the case.
If your health insurance carrier has denied medical expenses or treatment that’s covered by your policy, it’s time to put the legal acumen of Andalman & Flynn to work for you.
If you are disabled and have been denied necessary medical treatments or services, it’s important that you act quickly in order to protect your legal rights.

“Mr. Elliott Andalman and Ms. Zubaidah Haamid truly possess competency, genuine compassion, seamless teamwork, efficiency, patience and perseverance. As you might already know, federal disability retirement cases are a lot of work, and I am thankful I hired the best, to do that work for me. I knew right from the start that Mr. Andalman… was a different sort of attorney when I received such an informative and thorough free consultation. I actually had a difficult time discerning if this attorney was “too good to be true” since I had a bad experience with another attorney. The difference is night and day and I can assure you, after working with Mr. Andalman over the past year, he is not too good to be true. Rather, he is genuine in his commitment and compassion to his clients and has what it takes to stay the course and patiently pursue a win for his clients. Fortunately, in my case, it was a quick win which occurred just under 2.5 months from the time the application packet was submitted. Granted, it took several months to thoroughly prepare that packet but he does it right the first time. After learning I was approved in just 2.5 months, I was elated to say the least. It seemed as if a long battle was over and that after years of the “chronic illness/keep my job” roller coaster, a quick “win” was the ultimate morale boost, and allowed me the opportunity to fully focus on my health. Mr. Andalman called me as soon as he learned we won! I am reminded of an excerpt of one of my favorite bible passages (Micah 6:8) when I reflect on working with Elliot and Zubaidah for the past year, as I believe they truly: ‘Do justice, love mercy, walk humbly…’”
