Health Insurance & ERISA Litigation Law
Health Insurance & ERISA Litigation Law Attorneys in Watertown & Lake Mills, WI
If your employer provides a group health plan, and coverage for medical expenses is denied, time is of the essence. A group health plan is an employee welfare benefit plan established or maintained by an employer, a union, or both, to provide medical care for participants and/or their dependents directly, or through insurance, reimbursement, or otherwise. No two group health plans are exactly the same. However in most cases, when a participant receives a denial, they have only a matter of a few months to completely prepare their case and appeal the denial. If your case is denied on appeal, the most likely remedy is to sue for payment of benefits in Federal Court under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).
The attorneys of Neuberger, Griggs, Sweet & Froehle, LLP understand the difficulties associated with ERISA litigation and federal court procedures. They understand that you need an attorney who will act quickly, take the time to understand your health benefit plan, and ensure that you are appropriately compensated. Our attorneys are sensitive to the needs of our clients, and the reality that waiting through the litigation process to receive your benefits likely creates a financial hardship for the client. Therefore, they will tirelessly pursue resolution during the entire process through negotiations, dispute resolution, and pretrial motions. Nevertheless, if pre-trial resolution of the matter is not possible, our attorneys are dynamic courtroom opponents.
If your health benefits are denied, it is important that you contact our office immediately. If you miss any important deadlines (some of which come as soon as 90 days after the initial denial), you may lose your right to the compensation you deserve.
