Healthcare and Patients' Rights

The healthcare industry can be difficult to navigate for even the most sophisticated consumer. This large and complicated sector of the economy can leave you vulnerable to fraudulent or illegal practices. Additionally, it can be hard to know your rights and legal protections as a healthcare consumer due to the many overlapping government regulations at the federal and state level. For example, health insurance companies might bill you for more than you owe under your policy, or improperly deny claims that should be covered. Health care providers might try to charge you exorbitant bills that are illegal under some state laws, or excessive fees for copies of your own medical records. As another example, insurance companies or healthcare providers may deny you service based on protected characteristics, such as race or gender. If you feel that you have been the victim of a discriminatory, fraudulent, or illegal practice, please contact our consumer protection attorneys.
