Holding PPOs Accountable For Wrongful Denials

Preferred provider organizations (PPOs) are required to process your claims and pay for any and all medical procedures covered under your plan. Unfortunately, many PPOs deny medical insurance claims and refuse to pre-approve treatments that not only reduce pain and improve health, but may actually save your life.

You signed a contract with your PPO and you paid your premiums. You upheld your end of the contract. Its time they upheld theirs.

At The Law Offices of Hiepler & Hiepler, we take on PPOs and fight to get individuals throughout California the medical procedures they need to heal.

We Get Results

For more than 25 years, we have been advocating on behalf of patients who have been denied medical treatment by their PPOs and other insurance companies. Our efforts have not only resulted in record-setting verdicts, they have saved people’s lives.

At Hiepler & Hiepler, We Care About Your Health

When you have been through a tragedy, you need attorneys who will not only fight for your legal rights, but who actually care about your family. Attorney Mark Hiepler knows, firsthand, the impact an injury or illness has on the entire family. He has gone up against insurance companies in his personal life, fighting for his sister’s right to medical treatment. He will fight for you.

Forcing PPOs To Pay

Has your PPO denied medical treatments because they are “not medically necessary?” At Hiepler & Hiepler, we are dedicated to getting our clients the medical coverage they need to treat their injuries and illnesses. We not only fight to get our clients’ treatments covered, we also pursue compensation for the damage caused by denied claims.

Depending on your PPO, you may be able to obtain compensation for the economic losses — including out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages and reduced earning capacity — as well as the mental anguish and emotional distress, and physical effects of advancing disease caused by denied medical treatment.

If your loved one passed away because your PPO refused to cover medical treatment, we will pursue a wrongful death claim to hold the insurance company liable for your loss.

The extra burden of dealing with insurance companies can cause unneeded stress and anxiety. Let us take the burden from your shoulders and place it on ours.
