First Step: You Must File an Administrative Appeal

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is a federal law that standardizes much of the claims and appeals process for employer-based insurance plans. One of the most important things that you need to know about ERISA is that the first appeal must go directly to the insurance company. This type of appeal is often referred to as an administrative appeal or as an internal appeal.

In the administrative appeals stage of the process,  you will get a chance to submit supplemental evidence to address the insurer’s reason for denying your claim. In turn, the insurance company has an obligation to take a fresh look at your case. Many ERISA appeals are resolved during administrative review. 

Please note that if you fail to submit relevant evidence during this stage of the appeals process, you will lose out on it during any future ERISA litigation—should a lawsuit prove to be necessary. In ERISA litigation, courts are, with very few exceptions, restricted to reviewing the information that is already in the insurance company’s claim file. Do not go through the administrative appeals process alone: Get help from a top San Diego ERISA litigation attorney.
