Battling insurance companies for payment

Thu Feb 16th, 2017 on     Health Insurance,    

As a health care provider, you’re well aware of the daily struggle to get the payments you’re owed from the insurance company. It’s a miserable cycle: you provide the services for your patients, collect a minimal copayment and then get a notice saying it was denied. Now you’ve got bills to pay and you’re left with potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars in limbo because the insurance company delays payment or refuses to pay.

Insurers making health insurance denials based on bad faith

Fri Nov 25th, 2016 on     Health Insurance,    

Health insurers are not consumer-oriented protectors in our dog-eat-dog healthcare system of today. In fact, in Florida and elsewhere, some of the greatest heartache and family suffering has been caused by wrongful decisions of health insurers. It is common these days to receive a denial of health insurance coverage based on illogical and irrational reasons. These decisions are so hurtful to consumers that some of them must seek bankruptcy relief while others suffer permanent credit record blemishes for outlandish medical bills that they cannot pay.

We are close to finishing up our discussion of the survey conducted by Insurance.com . The researchers wanted to gauge how many Americans fell for some long-held beliefs about insurance coverage.

Why a medical claim may be denied

Mon Oct 13th, 2014 on     Health Insurance,    

No one plans to get sick or develop a medical condition, but the reality is that these things happen and, when they do, the costs associated with medical care and treatments are often astronomical. Health insurance exists to help defray costs associated with medical care. For example, if an individual gets sick and needs to go to the doctor, his or her health insurance typically covers a portion of the expenses related to a doctor’s visit or hospital medical tests.

Coverage under ACA may end abruptly for 94,000 Floridians

Sat Sep 6th, 2014 on     Health Insurance,    

It may look as if the federal government is a classic example of one hand not knowing what the other is doing, but 310,000 people now know or will soon know differently. It turns out that their Affordable Care Act applications or enrollment records do not agree with the records of the Citizenship and Immigration Services division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The ACA only covers people who are in the country legally.

Mental health and insurance claims: Relief could be in sight

Wed Sep 11th, 2013 on     Health Insurance,    

Fighting with insurance companies over whether or not they will cover a claim can be one of the most frustrating and agonizing aspect of working in the medical field.
