Insurance Status Should Not Effect Standard of Care

Share Button

Appropriate medical standard of care in no way, shape or form should be compromised based on a patient’s insurance status. Time and again I have seen cases where victims face corporate bullying from insurance companies and hospitals, leaving these people with the impression that their insurance type or altogether lack of, led to neglect or failure to provide appropriate medical attention in their time of need.

As a medical malpractice attorney, I have worked to represent clients in every socioeconomic class, race, income level, geographic location – you name it, the list goes on and on. One thing that is consistent is that the failure to understand your rights as an injured victim is preyed upon by the medical and insurance institutions. I am here to tell you, bullying and other strong-arm tactics are no match for me!

Common Misconceptions in Healthcare

Whether you are injured out of town, do not have insurance, or you do not have full coverage – plays zero role in the type of medical care you should receive. While many argue that healthcare facilities vary in the level of expertise and care from one to the next – The reasonable expectation for appropriate standard of care is unwavering.

Failure to provide timely and appropriate treatment because of insurance status in not acceptable. Treatment delay can have serious consequences.   Don’t misunderstand me, I have seen victims with the best coverage in the world fall prey to medical malpractice, just as I have seen an individual with no coverage become a victim of the system.

Time is of the essence in any medical malpractice case. Medical facilities, hospitals and insurance institutions will be quick to push for silence or try to settle for a fraction of what fair and just compensation.
