Insurance Industry Tactics: Disputing Your Medical Claims

Posted by Jennifer Hodges Kahn | May 10, 2012 | 0 Comments

If you've ever seen a bill from a hospital or clinic, you'll know that the itemized listings can be extremely precise as to what items and human efforts were spent on your care. Right down to the last Tylenol tablet, your medical bills will show anything that goes into the treatment you receive for your injuries following a serious accident.

While this is perfectly reasonable for you and the hospital to note, it's not an item that your insurance adjuster should dispute. Unfortunately, medical bills are often the subject of personal injury claim denial when an insurance adjuster digs too far into your records.

There have been several cases where insurance companies review all of the medical care you obtained and try to claim that you didn't need certain treatments. They may only agree to cover part of the expense or none of it at all, leaving you to foot the bill yourself.

It's also possible that they may try to force you to go to their chosen specialist for treatment and will only pay for services their provider offers.

You need to make sure you know your rights as the victim of an accident caused by another's negligence before the insurance companies take advantage of you. Insurance industry tactics change regularly, but a personal injury attorney can help you stay 1 step ahead and protect your settlement
