- Excerpt from Introduction: When Your Health Insurer Denies a Claim, Do You Have to Roll Over?

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare"), no one seeking health insurance coverage can be denied because of a pre-existing condition. But that doesn't mean an insurance company must cover every medical service you want or need. And sometimes, it denies coverage you're entitled to have.

When you sign up for an insurance plan, you're given a book with an often-daunting explanation of coverage that is supposed to help you understand what's covered and what isn't. Still, it's often a disappointing and expensive surprise when medical services you expected to be covered are denied by the insurer.

Coverage can be denied when you and your doctor first request it, or after the treatment, and you find yourself stuck with a big bill. This month, we look at health insurance denials and what you can do to reverse them.
