- Additional Details
- Certain insurers may be wrongfully denying benefits due when veterans and military personnel receive cancer care, and other medical care, at VA Hospitals or U.S. Government Hospitals for conditions, such as cancer and other illnesses, and the policy provides for benefits in the amount of all or part of the actual charges of that medical care.
Cancer or supplemental health policies often pay benefits to policyholders in the amount of all or part of the actual charge of certain medical care. Veterans and members of the military who received cancer care, and other medical care, at VA Hospitals or U.S. Government Hospitals may allegedly have been denied benefits due for all or part of the actual charge associated with the medical care solely because they did not pay out of their own pocket for the medical care other than any standard co-pay. However, military veterans and personnel do pay for this medical care at VA Hospitals or U.S. Government Hospitals by virtue of their military service to our country and, therefore, it has been alleged, should be entitled to benefits under the terms of their insurance policies based on the actual charges associated with this medical care.
If you are a veteran or member of the military, you may be eligible for benefits under the cancer or supplemental health insurance policy if the following occurred:
- you purchased or are covered under a family member's cancer or supplemental health policy;
- you received medical care at a VA Hospital or U.S. Government Hospital or facility;
- you did not pay for the medical care other than a standard co-pay; and
- your insurance company denied your claim for benefits
