The health care industry involves billions and billions in insurance claims. Insurance companies that underwrite health insurance coverage devote great resources to controlling costs. But sometimes insurers systematically deny certain claims or deny specific treatments or benefits without any valid basis to artificially boost profits at the expense of policyholders.
No insurance company is too big to get away with bad faith practices. At Guenard & Bozarth, we understand that your health and family finances are on the line. This is not simply a legal dispute but your life and your future. Our experienced attorneys fight major insurance companies, including filing of bad faith lawsuits, for unfair practices in processing health insurance claims:
- Denial of medical benefits without investigation or explanation
- Denying needed surgery as experimental or unnecessary
- Unreasonable delays or requiring clients to “jump through hoops”
- Termination of benefits or health insurance policies
Guenard & Bozarth serves policyholders in Northern California and beyond in claims and appeals, with offices in Sacramento and Elk Grove. If you are getting the endless runaround for a clear and legitimate health insurance claim, being denied treatment without cause, or being denied coverage of medical bills to the tune of thousands of dollars, call 916-226-9098 for a free consultation with our experienced trial lawyers, or contact us online.
We will promptly investigate your car, motorcycle or truck crash to pursue maximum damages.
We fight back when legitimate claims are unfairly denied by insurance companies.
