Securing Healthcare Benefits for People in New England and Throughout the Country
Our Boston ERISA attorney has successfully represented clients in cases related to ERISA health insurance benefits, such as wrongful denial of health and disability insurance benefits. Our firm serves clients in New England and the Boston area, as well as throughout the country.
ERISA Health Insurance
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)—a federal law—governs retirement benefits, disability benefits, and health benefits. Generally, ERISA-governed employee welfare benefit plans include healthcare insurance and medical benefits. This includes those provided through a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO).
Mr. Feigenbaum has spent more than 17 years concentrating his practice on benefits protected by ERISA. He understands that ERISA was originally intended to protect employee’s health care benefits. However, insurance companies twist the law to give an advantage in their dealings with injured and sick people. If you face an ERISA-governed health benefits concern, contact our health care benefits lawyer today for experienced assistance.
Helping You Get the Healthcare Coverage You Deserve
Our firm may be able to secure health care benefits for you if your health insurance claim was denied. Insurance companies may deny a claim, for example, if the insurer contends a treatment is experimental, inappropriate, or unnecessary. If your doctor prescribed a treatment or advised you to have surgery and your insurance company refuses to cover the cost, we can help.
Another area where insurance companies deny health care claims involves in-patient psychiatric treatment, particularly with adolescents and college-aged dependents. This type of mental health treatment can be particularly expensive and insurance providers simply don’t want to pay on claims. We can represent you with bad faith insurance claims, as well as disability claim denials for non-citizens working overseas at U.S. multi-national companies using American insurance companies to cover benefits.
In many cases of serious injury or illness, time is a major concern. Your condition or that of your loved one may be a matter of life or death if the medical care is delayed. Under ERISA, we can help put your case on the fast track to get you the benefits you need as quickly as possible.
Boston ERISA Attorney Securing Payment for Healthcare Providers
Our firm also represents healthcare providers and physicians in helping them recover payments from insurers for services provided to individuals. Insurance companies may claim that services such as certain medications, surgeries, or other care are not covered under the patient’s insurance policy because the treatments are experimental, inappropriate, or not medically necessary. If you are a healthcare provider and are not receiving payment by an insurance company for legitimate services, we can help you get the payment due.
