Patients/Family Members

patientsFamilyDealing with mental illness or substance abuse can be a long, arduous journey marked by feelings of despair, loneliness, and anxiety that negatively affect patients and their families. At Psych-Appeal, we don’t want you to ask, “Will I be covered?” Instead, we want you to receive the treatment you need to place you on a path of transformation and recovery as quickly as possible.

Our lawyers are vigorous advocates who provide high-quality, effective representation in appeals for insurance benefits. Individualized services for patients include:

  • Preparing internal and external appeals
  • Negotiating with insurers
  • Petitioning regulators for intervention when insurers abuse the claims process
  • Pursuing litigation in federal and state courts

We’re handling class-action lawsuits against some of the largest insurers in the nation, including UnitedHealthcare, Anthem, Cigna, Aetna, Magellan, Blue Shield of California, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois. We also deal with cases involving the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program.

The end result? We’ve recovered millions of dollars on behalf of clients when other firms could not.
