Waukesha, WI asked in Health Care Law and Insurance Bad Faith for Wisconsin

Q: I'm being billed for two health insurance premiums for the same month coverage. They claim i didn't call to cancel 1.

It's with the same company and it clearly shows the have me enrolled in two plans. One should have stopped when the other started and they are saying it's my fault for not cancelling the first plan when the second started. No claims have been made on either plan. TO me this seems deceptive. When I called to change plans It was to CHANGE plans not add another plan. They say I owe the premiums for both plans.

A: A Wisconsin attorney would be able to advise best on this, as insurance practices are governed by state laws. But your post remains open for four weeks. You raise a valid point. However, pushing that issue in court could be costly in terms of time and resources. One option might be to try to arrange a limited, low-cost or free consultation with an attorney working in health care law to review its provisions and advise if the issue would be viable to argue under Wisconsin state consumer laws and if the cost would be justified. Good luck
