ERISA Coverage Disputes

ERISA Coverage Disputes

Among these are the rights to sue for denied benefits and to seek benefits through an appeals process.

We help clients who have recently been diagnosed with an illness and are curious about what is covered under employee benefits. In these circumstances, we can often review a person's policy in a consultation. We help clients who have been denied coverage. An ERISA-governed claim will be required to pass through an internal appeals process mandated by the insurance company. We represent clients during this internal appeals process. The internal appeal is a crucial part of the case, and it is equally crucial to have attorney representation during this time.
