Health Insurers Denying Medical Claims


Las Vegas, NV: Reports of denial of valid medical claims and high co-pays are being made by educators in Nevada, against Teachers Health Trust, its administrator, WellHealth, and its board of directors.

The sum demanded was $6,800, which she alleges she was not informed of until . She until the morning of the surgery, when being admitted to hospital.

According to the lawsuit filed, the teachers are also being turned away by doctors, and in some cases being sued by providers WellHealth refused to pay.
