A: An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Depending on the amount in dispute and complexity of an appeal, people may choose to work with attorneys who handle health care claims. Read the fine print on the conditions for the appeal. It looks like three weeks have elapsed, and there can be short windows of time (depending on the policy and the carrier) to file an appeal. If you decide that you want to work with an attorney, you could search online for attorneys who handle health care claims. Good luck
