Is My Covid-19 Test Covered by Health Insurance?

On March 18, 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act was signed into law. The law contains a provision (Division F Section 6001) for insurance coverage for the testing of Covid-19. It states that, both group and individual health insurance plans shall (aka must in legalese) provide coverage and must not “impose any cost sharing, […]

Coronavirus Insurance Issues

My apologies for my less than frequent blog post. One of the things I intend to do during this very uncertain and unsteady time is to blog about some of the issues we’ve been dealing with recently.. I hesitate to send this first post on one level, because I’ve never posted (as infrequently as I […]

Grammar! How verb tense won a health insurance lawsuit!

Many “trial lawyers”  crow about how much money they make for themselves and their clients.  We’re not of that ilk. Every case is important to the client, and for us. Let me tell you about a recent case of ours that I’m just tickled about. We represent a wonderful woman who has been a public […]

Reverse Mortgage problems… the issues are ongoing

I posted about Reverse Mortgages two weeks ago. We received some excellent and helpful e-mails in response, as well as several comments here on the Legal Examiner. One of those comments suggests that our information is old and outdated. Actually that is simply not true….. Further, I am certainly not alone in my concerns. I […]

Reverse Mortgages and Mortgage Servicing: What we continue to learn is disturbing

Last September, I posted about reverse mortgages here. We agreed to represent our client, Mrs. Gravlin 4 days before the trial was scheduled in the foreclosure action.  She had a reverse mortgage, they were foreclosing on her (despite what you might have seen on TV commercials, you can lose your house…..) Mrs. Gravlin had been […]

Medical Bankruptcy

I’ve been  meaning to comment on this timely and recent New York Times article: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/06/upshot/lost-jobs-houses-savings-even-insured-often-face-crushing-medical-debt.html?_r=0 The article in turn refers to this joint Kaiser Family Foundation/New York Times Survey: http://kff.org/health-costs/report/the-burden-of-medical-debt-results-from-the-kaiser-family-foundationnew-york-times-medical-bills-survey/ I, like many of you, have been paying attention to the Presidential campaign and debates.  My question, since I haven’t anything from most of the […]

Continental Airbags Class Action

Several weeks ago, our terrific team, filed suit on behalf of 2008 – 2010 Honda Accord Owners regarding their Airbag systems (SRS). This system is not a Takata system, but is instead manufactured by Continental. We learned today that the issue is not limited to Honda at all. Today, Continental announced a recall of those […]

Medical Bill balance billing

Here’s the scenario: You get healthcare, you give the healthcare provider your insurance card (automobile insurance after an accident, or health insurance/HMO otherwise). The insurance company/HMO pays the provider what it wants to pay (that determination is another subject completely!) Now you get a bill from the healthcare provider or a bill collector telling you […]

Do the Regulators really regulate?

For many years, Florida has allowed health insurers to sell group policies within the state, that are not subject to much regulation in the state, under a statute known as the out-of-state group law, Fla. Stat. 627.6515: http://archive.flsenate.gov/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0600-0699/0627/Sections/0627.6515.html Part of that statute requires that the certificate that the insured receives must contain language, in contrasting […]

The Florida Civil Justice System is in peril

I am, at best, and infrequent blogger.  I simply refuse to hire someone to blog for me, (which I understand is the norm, and not the exception), because I think that a blog is personal, and is intended to give my personal insights and feelings.  so that is my weak explanation for my long gap […]
