When I joined the company I was told in no uncertain terms that the Plan Document Excludes any treatment for Developmental Disabilities including Autism. My wife spoke with customer services and a supervisor... Read more »
Ok, so this is a health plan provided by a religious organization acting in the capacity of an employer. While religious organizations are granted a lot of leeway in choosing benefits within the scope of the practices of the faith, they are still prohibited from other types of discrimination. What...Read more »
The plan states in its Plan Document "any therapy or service for a developmental disability/DD is a non-covered service under the plan". When consulting with customer service & doctors who are providers in the plan, members are told that services for DD dependents are excluded from... Read more »
I'm pretty sure that religious organizations are exempt from the requirements relating to discrimination in this context. The rules allow them to discriminate, period, and I can't think of a single legal remedy that might be available to you. Nonetheless, even if they can legally...Read more »
Identity theft is a crime, so one place to go is to the police, with whatever evidence you can gather about this. You might contact the testing center and request copies from "your" test, since "you" were the patient, you are entitled to them. The next place to go is to the...Read more »

Although the money was paid back I lost the benefit from Medicare that allows this procedure only once every 5 years.

Fraud has a 3 year statute of limitations from the date of discovery. Perhaps you should sue the dentist for fraud. You could even go to Small Claims if it is less than $10,000. You should definitely consult with a Dental Malpractice attorney in your area.
I mostly work part time without benefits. This year I have full health benefits for the first time and added the kids as a back-up for them, thinking my ex’s insurance would stay their primary provider. Now I’m being told that since my birthday is earlier in the year, my insurance is... Read more »
Actually this is "Family law" not "health care". As I read the quoted Court Order, which is still in effect and controls the situation, "the EMPLOYEE parent with such benefits shall provide for the health insurance of the children", so as I understand this, it means...Read more »

There is the slight chance that a...Read more »

You need to contact a good civil rights attorney immediately. If this has been happening for such a long period of time, you will have to explain why you have not taken this step long ago. It just may be that the statute of limitations, which sets out the time within you must act on your own...Read more »
I have been drinking Starkey water from Whole Foods for many years until I found out just last Friday on 06/19/2020 that it is very high in arsenic levels. I have developed liver illness (advanced fibrosis). I live in San Francisco of California.
I'm sorry for your issues. You do NOT want to normally be part of a class action as the remedies offered are rarely as good as the remedies you can get on your own. Your more important question since you are automatically part of the class if you fit the class description, is "How do I...Read more »
The problem is from what you said, it is not clear how the employer got this information, or whether it was confidential health information. Even if not, he could be defaming you. Have you been tested? Negative?

You are not required to take any medications you have not first discussed with a physician. Also, if the antidepressants were not prescribed by a treating psychiatrist, I would seriously question why they were prescribed and for what symptoms, and what diagnosis justifies the prescription....Read more »

You need to get an attorney. Contact a member of the Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) --they give free consults. Of course the other lawyer can run rings around you--he or she went to law school. Get a free consult so you understand the basics. Then you can decide whether it's worth...Read more »
She only needs to provide proof of lawful permanent resident status by way of her alien number. Perhaps, she can also show a copy of her ‘valid card.’ She has no other status, so other questions seem irrelevant, perhaps, unless this concerns more, which seems questionable.
My job gave us 2 paid weeks off and I got it approved both in person and email on Monday. Well on Friday they called everyone and said that now we must come to work if we want to be paid due to it being an essential business.

Paid time off is a discretionary employer provided benefit, and therefore the employer can administer it as it wishes as long as it is not being administered in an unlawfully discriminatory manner. What you describe does not appear to be unlawful.
First, you should comply with the state Stay at Home order as best you can. If you have a critical position within the company, you should discuss the issue with your immediate management or someone in Human Resources, if there is one in your company. Generally, use good common sense for yourself...Read more »
