What is insurance bad faith in the health and disability field?
Insurance companies establish contracts with policyholders to pay benefits if the policyholder becomes disabled or to pay medical bills due to accident or illness. When an insurance company fails to pay these claims and fails to deal fairly with policyholders, this is bad faith. It is important to review all of your available legal resources before taking action. Our law firm is dedicated to representing clients who have been unfairly treated.
Examples of insurance bad faith
- Attempting to avoid paying benefits by unfairly claiming that the insured failed to disclose information when they filled out their health insurance application
- Denying disability benefits by unreasonably claiming that the policyholder is not disabled
- Unreasonably delaying the payment of benefits
- Refusing to pay a valid claim
- Refusing to investigate a claim
- Failing to properly communicate with the policyholder
- Wrongfully denying a claim by relying on biased medical providers (hired guns)
- Wrongfully denying coverage claiming pre-existing conditions
