The internal grievance procedures used by our insurance companies are weighted against us! I didn’t take that route; I took my complaint directly to my State Department of Insurance (DOI) and filed a complaint with them directly against Blue Cross. Had I not done so, I would have probably lost my case or been offered a lesser settlement.

The insurance companies hire so-called doctors (usually not those with actual practice experience, but with teaching credentials) to render “position papers” that support the insurance company’s denial of coverage. That unfairly stacks the deck against the consumer and most State’s know about this tactic. What State are you in? Some are more consumer protective than others are.
