Healthcare insurance is a multifaceted industry, encompassing various methods of payment for all types of medical treatment. Health insurance expert witnesses are experienced in several areas, as the details of a health insurance plan can be very different depending on the particular forms of treatment required of each patient. Issues with health insurance, such as discrepancies, misinformation, fraud, workers compensation, bad faith, claims, misrepresentation, risk assessment, underwriting, and medical billing, may lead to complex forms of litigation and grounds for potential lawsuits.
Many instances of health insurance-related court cases result from insurance being misrepresented to consumers regarding the levels of coverage offered by each plan. Health insurance expert witnesses are called upon to offer expert opinions on the proper means of health care consulting, whether it concerns Medicaid, Medicare, or other type of plan. Patients may be led to believe that such treatment as surgery and pharmaceuticals will be covered in the event of required medical attention, resulting in insurance bad faith claims.
Additional issues with health insurance often apply to workers compensation and other plans regarding treatment for injuries or health-related matters brought about while working. There may be a dispute between several parties, including the employee, employer, and healthcare provider, as to whether a plan should cover the necessary health costs, depending on the nature of each insurance plan.
