Understanding your health plan’s internal appeals process

As a Texas resident with a health insurance policy, you have the right to question your insurer’s decisions if the company denies you coverage or decides to terminate your relationship. The first step in the process involves requesting what is known as an “internal review.” Attorney Jon Michael Smith is well-versed in the methods health insurers often use to deny claims, and he has helped many clients facing similar circumstances pursue appeals and other solutions to meet their needs.

Choosing a life insurance policy

Protecting your family financially is an important consideration. That is why, at the legal practice of Jon Michael Smith, our team does everything possible to hold Texas insurers to their promises. However, our ability to secure benefits or damages is limited by the scope of internal insurance company negotiations and courtroom proceedings. Choosing the right insurance policy could go a long way towards securing your family's future.

Examples of bad faith insurance tactics

If you live in Texas and experience a car accident, develop a medical condition or otherwise have cause to file a claim with your insurance company, you may be counting on the entity to provide you with what you need to move forward. Regrettably, however, insurance companies sometimes prioritize profits over those they insure, which can leave you wondering how you will begin to rebuild without their assistance. Attorney Jon Michael Smith built a career upon going to bat against unethical insurance companies, and he has helped many victims of bad faith insurance seek appropriate recourse.

How can you fight an auto insurance claim denial?

If you, like many others across Texas, have ever filed an auto insurance claim after a car accident only to receive a denial in response, you probably understand all too well just how infuriating this can be. Expecting to receive a certain amount of money after your accident and then hearing that you will instead receive nothing at all can leave you scrambling to figure out how to make up the difference. You might be remiss, however, to simply accept your insurer’s claim denial without a fight, and there are certain steps you may be able to take to help fight your denial.

Tips for avoiding a heath insurance claim denial

If you are a Texas resident who has ever had the unfortunate experience of having your health insurance claim denied, you may know full well just how anxiety-inducing this can be. An unexpected claim denial can leave you facing massive medical bills, leaving you in the hole without knowing how you are going to pull yourself out. Attorney Jon Michael Smith understands how upsetting it can be to have your insurance company deny your claim, and he has helped many clients facing similar circumstances pursue appropriate recourse.

The facts about independent medical examinations

One way insurance companies may try to turn you down for an injury claim is to say that whatever injuries you have sustained are either exaggerated, misdiagnosed, or do not exist. Showing the results of medical exams from your Texas doctor that prove you have indeed been hurt can show you are deserving of benefits. But then an insurer throws another hurdle your way, claiming that you used a doctor that is too biased in your favor. They want an independent medical examination conducted instead before they will proceed with your claim.

Life insurance companies may cut costs at your expense

Families depend on life insurance to survive if something were to happen to one or more breadwinners. Collecting benefits can be the only comfort in a time of mourning and uncertainty. However, some families discover the unfortunate truth: many insurance companies attempt to avoid paying this vital support.
