Medical Insurance

If a child has primary and secondary medical insurance who settles the dispute when the primary decides the secondary should now be primary instead of secondary as they had been for several years now?

It's not at the discretion of the insurance company as to who is the primary or the secondary. It is the sole decision of the policy holder(you). They are a paid service and are there to serve you. Correction: No, it's not at the discretion of the policy holder. The primary coverage is based on who's birthday comes first. For example, in this particular case, the child lives with his mother and stepfather, and the stepfather and the biological father both have him on their medical insurance policies. The father's birthday is in October and the stepfather's birthday is in December. So the father's insurance is primary, and the stepfather's insurance is secondary. These are the quidelines insurance companies use to determine which one is primary, and which one is secondary.

There are a few things you can do if you have a life insurance death claim that was denied. What you should not do is try to dispute the denial by yourself. Disputing death claims should be handled by a professional who has a lot of experience dealing with life insurance denials. So two options:1. Contact a local attorney who specializes in "bad faith claims" for life insurance. This person should have significant experience dealing with insurance companies. He/she will represent you in a legal dispute against the insurer and attempt to get your claim paid. You should expect to pay the attorney 30% of whatever you get from the insurer.2. You can also contact The Center for Life Insurance Disputes. They offer an alternative to filing a lawsuit. Instead, they deal directly with the insurer in order to get your claim paid. Their service is usually about one-third the cost of an attorney and quicker because you don't have to wait for court dates and filing schedules.AnswerYou need an attorney if there are grounds to challenge reason for denial.
