Health Insurance Bad Faith Settlement

August 2008

Rick Hall and Mike Tanner negotiated a confidential settlement for a client whose health insurance claim had been denied due to an alleged pre-existing condition. The lawsuit alleged the insurer acted in bad faith in purposefully misreading its policy to exclude coverage for diagnostic tests on potentially malignant lesions and for fabricating a contention that this was a pre-existing condition.
