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.

“Elliott and his staff won my case! Thank you again for all your help with my case. Elliott and his staff were outstanding to work with during this trying time for me and my family. I have a number of physical issues that hit me all around the same time, as well as complications from… one of my four surgeries I had within a four month period of time. I quickly exhausted all my sick and annual leave, leave donated to me, and also had been on three months of leave without pay. I was a U.S. Air Force program manager with a heavy workload. My team covered for me while I was out of the office and did a great job, but someone needed to be in my position doing the job on a daily basis. After learning that my primary care doctor, surgeon, and civilian doctor on base would support my disability claim, I did a search online and contacted Andalman & Flynn. Elliott and his staff were very understanding and supportive through the entire process. It was a trying time for my family and me to include the financial strain of missing so much work without pay. Elliott and his team were always available to answer questions, and even just talk when I needed them. I never waited longer than 24 hours for an email response or a returned call. Elliott and his team let me know every step of the FERS disability retirement application process and gave me an approximate time-line of the process from beginning to end. My case took approximately 10 months from start to finish. Understanding all cases are different and that some are decided in a shorter time or longer. My case was about the average time it takes to complete. Again, Elliott and his team were all over my case and even though this was a stressful time with all my health issues, I was at peace knowing they were always there for my family and me. My wife and I both appreciate the outstanding service, empathy, and support Elliott and his team displayed toward my family and me during this process.
I thank Elliott and his team again for all they have done for my family and me, and I highly recommend Andalman & Flynn to anyone looking for an outstanding and experienced firm in the field of disability law. Thank you Elliott!” Read more “Client Testimonial”
