What is Cancer Insurance?

An estimated 10 million people have cancer insurance policies. Frequently sold through employee benefit plans, cancer insurance policies promise to provide cash benefits for cancer-related medical expenses such as hospitalization, surgery, anesthesia, chemotherapy, radiation and preventative care. This is not always the case. Many patients discover too late that there are problems with their policies, or have their cancer insurance claims denied.

Examples of bad faith include:

  • Denying a claim for no apparent reason
  • Delaying a claim investigation
  • Inadequately investigating a claim
  • Misrepresenting the meaning of the language in your policy

Insurance Claim Denied? Speak To An Attorney

If you have a cancer insurance policy and feel your claim has been unfairly denied, you many have a bad faith claim against the insurance company. A bad faith claim occurs when an insurer wrongfully denies a claim or denies a claim without reason. At Sokolove Law, we’ve helped victims of bad faith claims recover the compensation they deserve.

When a person purchases insurance, they enter into a contract with the insurance company. The insurer agrees to pay certain benefits in exchange for regular premium payments. In other words, the person buying insurance should expect an insurer to honor the terms of the contract in good faith. If an insurer denies a claim without cause, then it has breached the contract. The insurer has acted in bad faith.

If your cancer insurance claim or the claim of someone you love has been denied, you may be entitled to compensation. Fill out the form on this page or call Sokolove Law today at 877-490-6522 for a free case evaluation.
