Our Northern California Attorneys Can Help You With Your Health Care Claim

We all know how expensive health care has become in California. Over the last two decades, U.S. health care costs have risen far faster than the rate of inflation. While costs continue to rise, insurance companies are making things even harder on people who desperately need medical treatment. Insurers frequently deny claims that should have been approved.

While having your healthcare claim rejected can be deeply frustrating and incredibly stressful, it is important to remember that you do still have legal options available. At Kantor & Kantor, our top-rated Bay Area ERISA attorneys have extensive experience handling a wide range of healthcare claims. Whether you are bringing a claim against a plan governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), or any other individual insurance policy, our law firm is prepared to help. Please contact us today for your free, comprehensive consultation.

Understand Why Your Claim Was Denied

Insurance companies reject health claims for a seemingly endless number of different reasons. The first step in building a successful appeal is determining precisely why your claim was denied. You should have received a written denial letter from your insurer. It is highly recommended that you send a copy of this denial letter to your San Francisco Bay Area ERISA lawyer. Your lawyer will be able to review your claim and your denial letter. Some standard reasons why claims are denied include the following:

  • Mistakes on the application;
  • Missing documentation;
  • Disagreement about whether medical treatment was truly ‘necessary’;
  • Disputes over what type of treatment is covered by the plan;
  • Use of the wrong provider;
  • Policy limits;
  • Lack of authorization; and
  • Mistakes by the insurance company.
