I have represented physicians in a class action lawsuit against health insurance companies and health maintenance organizations over reimbursements to physicians for medical care provided to patient subscribers, as well as a separate class action on behalf of dentists who were denied millions of dollars when insurance providers paid commissions to consultants with government money.
I have also represented the parents of a child who died of a drug overdose after being denied drug rehabilitation despite medical authorization. I also obtained an injunction barring a health insurance managed care organization from denying a first remission bone marrow transplant to a patient suffering from aggressive T-cell lymphoma.
