Health Insurance

Did Your Health Insurance Provide Needed Coverage?

Health insurance companies sometimes seem to spend more energy on how to deny claims that in how to assure the health and well-being of policyholders.

Health insurance coverage disputes involve a powerful insurance company against a person who is sick. In this David-and-Goliath struggle, the Girardi | Keese law firm is, as always, on the side of David. Our attorneys fight back and help sick people get the coverage they have paid for and are entitled to.

Health insurance should be there when it is needed.

Health insurance companies give a lot of assurances when they are selling their policies. They give people peace of mind by telling them about all the covereddoctors' visits, prescriptions, hospitalizations, lab tests that will be available when a health crisis occurs.

Then the policyholder has a claim — and gets told about all the doctors' visits, prescriptions, hospitalizations and lab tests that will notbe covered.

An insurance company called a medical procedure that had been used effectively for years "experimental" and refused to cover it. Girardi | Keese trial lawyers fought back, and the judge in the case ordered coverage.

At Girardi | Keese, we judge an insurance company not by their promises, but by their actions. In case after case, we have seen well-known, profitable insurance companies deny essential medical treatment to sick people who had counted on the most essential protection most people will ever need - their health insurance. In many cases, denial of coverage can prolong an illness and even cause death.

When a cancer patient needed surgery and chemotherapy, the insurance company said "no." Why? They had a question about another family member's health history. Girardi | Keese lawyers fought back and won.
