  • Description

    Even the highest premiums won’t protect patients from being denied medical insurance claims. The scrutiny under which the health care system places medical procedures and long-term disability care has made the denial of claims increasingly common, not to mention frustrating. But before filing an appeal, it’s imperative to understand the appeal and litigation process. David Trueman presents this fascinating CLE course in which he explains the various types of medical insurances and their areas of coverage and then explores the critical aspects of filing an appeal and litigating denials. Trueman pays special attention to key issues such as establishing the basis for an appeal, gaining support from medical professionals, preparing documents and specific strategies that can be used for different types of insurance plans.
