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.

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.

My Aetna insurance denied a Yeast Infection lab test which is covered by my plan. As a result the test costs $750.00. The reason they gave is the doctor put the wrong diagnostic code when he provided the information to the laboratory. I have contacted the doctor's office many times, but it just falls in death ears.

The insurance makes me go through unending paperwork. There is no fault of my own, the insurance should communicate with the doctor to resolve the issue.

I feel like my insurance is just trying to discourage me to use it.

This is all very distressing and unhealthy
