A: A Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal. You could reach out to health care attorneys to try to set up a free initial consult to discuss your best options in terms of challenging the denial - litigation or other means, based on the terms of the policy. Gather your policy and medical file documents - an attorney will need that information to advise meaningfully. Good luck
