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.

What do I do if my health insurance won’t pay for my medical bills?
In Maryland, it’s not uncommon for personal injury victims to be denied their claims if they have been found to be partially at fault for their injury. This is known as the “contributory negligence” rule, which is an old-fashioned rule that makes it difficult for victims to recover damages even when they are only partially to blame. As a result, insurance companies can argue that since you were partially to blame for your accident, they can’t provide coverage for your medical expenses. Do not be tricked into believing this is the end of the road for you: A knowledgeable insurance coverage attorney can help fight the insurance company’s decision and ensure you receive the coverage you’re owed.
