Your Claim Was Denied: Now What?
If you disagree with the denial of your insurance claim, you do have the right to appeal that decision, both through your insurance company’s appeal process and in a court of law. We have represented clients after a wide range of denied insurance claims.
Not all denied claims are the result of coverage disputes — many claims are disputed for contract or policy reasons. For example, a health insurance claim could be denied due to a pre-existing condition. Or, payment on a life insurance policy may be denied due to a misrepresentation on the application. A long-term disability claim may be denied because the insurance company asserts that the disabled person could pursue work in another field.
You should not assume that your insurance company has the final word on denied claims. For example, in South Carolina, an insurance company may be required to prove intentional fraud in order to deny a claim based on misrepresented customer information. In a case like this, attorney Kefalos recommends bringing the family and the insurance agent together to determine the actual chain of events.
