Managed Care Attorney in Washington, DC
Managed care plans are a type of health insurance designed to reduce health care costs and improve quality of care. They work by creating contracts with certain health care providers or medical facilities, and offer their services to members at reduced costs. Common examples of managed care plans include Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO), Preferred Provider Organizations (PPO), and Point of Service (POS) plans.
Unfortunately, decisions that managed care executives make can result in patients being harmed, often because these programs place profits over people. When this happens, wronged consumers can assert their rights by filing lawsuits against the responsible party.
CASES WE HANDLE
At Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, our legal team is prepared to represent individuals and families who have suffered at the hands of managed care companies. We handle cases where managed care facilities deny certain procedures that your healthcare provider recommends. Often people can suffer injury and even death because a managed care organization refuses to provide care to a person, even though their doctor recommends the procedures.
For example, if you have cancer, and the doctor recommends a treatment plan, and the insurance company denies the treatment, and you later die because you did not get the treatment that you need, the insurance company can be held responsible for their careless and reckless decision, that led to this wrongful death.
