Florida Long Term Care Insurance Attorney
Wrongful Denials, Delays and Underpayments
The cost of long term care is overwhelming and can deplete a person’s life savings very quickly. As a result, many people purchase a long term care insurance policy which covers the cost of care in the event that they become chronically ill or disabled and are unable to manage on their own for an extended period of time. Although benefits vary based on the policy purchased, typically long term care insurance pays for care received in a nursing home, hospice, assisted living facility or in-home care. Long term care insurance disputes often arise when an insurance company:
- Unreasonably delays claims;
- Denies legitimate claims;
- Underpays legitimate claims;
- Uses vague or confusing terminology in the policy to misrepresent benefits;
- Conceals benefits from the insured;
- Compels the policyholder to file a lawsuit before payment of benefits;
- And other scenarios.
Long term care insurance policies can be very complex and difficult to understand and dealing with insurance companies can be very frustrating – which is why having an attorney who understands long term care insurance on your side is so important to effectively enforce your rights. Alan Sackrin is a Board Certified Trial Lawyer with over 28 years of experience representing policyholders who have been treated unfairly or in bad faith by their insurance companies. Alan will manage or negotiate your initial claim, review your claim to determine if the insurance company has acted properly in evaluating your claim or in denying you coverage, appeal an improper denial of claim on your behalf or litigate against the insurance company, if necessary, to help you obtain the benefits that you deserve.
