Denver, Colorado Bad Faith Health Insurance Claims Attorneys
Insurance companies that delay payment or refuse coverage under a valid policy can be held financially liable for economic harm that occurs as a result. Referred to as "bad faith insurance practices," insurers who fail to adhere to the terms of a policy and the laws and regulations that govern the insurance industry, can be sued for their actions. In the case of health insurance coverage, an insurer may try to claim an undisclosed pre-existing condition, experimental treatment, or over-billing nullifying coverage of a policy. At the law office of Gregory R. Giometti & Associates, our attorneys hold insurers financially and legally accountable for bad faith health insurance practices.

Allegations of a Pre-Existing Condition Result in a Denial of Coverage
Depending on the kind of health insurance you have, a pre-existing condition may not be covered under your policy. For example, if you injured your back years ago, but failed to disclose the injury, your insurer may deny payment of treatment for back pain. In this sense, it's not beyond doctors working for insurance companies to try to justify a denial of coverage by falling back on the old canard of a pre-existing condition.
At Gregory R. Giometti & Associates, P.C. our attorneys are prepared to challenge these kinds of tactics used by health insurers. Our lawyers consult medical specialists who critically review the decisions of insurance doctors and expose assumptions on their part that betray a bias leaning in the direction of an insurer.
