I went to another facility to have an MRI done. They uploaded the results to me. I don't understand what I'm reading and my doctor has not contacted me about them. It's been 2 weeks. He didn't want to order the study in the first place but I felt something was off.
A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It could be that the doctor is busy. In terms of the reports, some of them contain imaging parameters that no one other than the tech really understands, in terms of things like pulse sequences, etc. But it would be...View More
IME notices generally contain a request to bring X-rays to the exam. But in many instances, the examining doctor realizes the patient doesn't have them in their possession during the early stages of treatment when the first IME is often scheduled. It could depend on the protocols of the...View More

A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Based on the brief description, one can only make some general guesses. One might be that the insurance company took a more lenient stance on the twenty-three-hour issue. Another is that they might choose to take...View More

A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. You ask about your options. A starting point could be to try to arrange a consult with an attorney.

I signed an I pad agreeing to pay a certain amount and now I have received a bill in the mail 6 months later for $400 they are claiming the insurance didn't cover. Do I have any legal ground to refuse to pay and how do I go forward?
I would have liked to offer a more unequivocal "yes" or "no" response here, but it is difficult to offer a definite answer without knowing the full terms of any agreements or paperwork/screens you signed, and the nature of the denial. Terms and conditions imposed by the...View More
Following a car accident our health care provider released all of our family's medical records, including 3rd party medical records /3 people/ to the at fault party's insurance company. accident was december 2016/ potential hipaa violation / privilege violation was less than 90 days ago
Yes, if there was an over broad production that didn't involve anyone in the accident and/or protected info. You can report the provider to the Medical Board and pursue a HIPAA violation claim but those are very difficult cases. Good luck!

Many lawyers will give free consultations, and if they assess that you have a good case they will...View More
