Health maintenance organizations, or HMOs, are seemingly the affordable help many people seek when trying to cover expensive medical costs. From the lower monthly premiums, to the freedom of choosing your own doctor, the benefits of using an HMO appear great from the outside. However, when HMOs begin refusing to pay for necessary medical costs, major issues begin to take effect. Cases in which the HMO refuses to pay for treatment are more common then one may be lead to believe. Many people have become stuck paying off incredibly high medical costs that they were under the belief of being covered by their HMO. If you’ve been a victim of HMO malpractice, contact Catania & Catania today to speak with one of our Tampa HMO lawyers.
Malpractice by an HMO can occur at any point during the claims process. From failing to recognize eligible policyholders, to making unfair denial of coverage claims, HMOs have the ability to put their policyholders in dire straights during health emergencies. Not only can HMOs cut off coverage, but doctors and physicians play a role as well. If they discover the limits imposed by your HMO, they have the capability to take full advantage. From recommending specific tests and procedures, to limiting the number of admissions for a patient, unethical doctors can also be to blame for medical malpractice involving HMOs. Don’t allow an HMO or your physician restrict your rights to medical care based on costs. Our Florida HMO attorneys can help you sort through your case, and validate claims of wrongdoing on the part of either guilty party.
