What Is Material Misrepresentation?
Some dishonest health insurance companies have earned notoriety for going out of their way to deny a claim without a valid reason. In many of these cases, “material misrepresentation” is listed as the reason why a claim is denied. Material misrepresentation is basically an insurance law way of saying that a policyholder’s information as reported on an insurance application, form, or renewal was incorrect.
Any sort of error can count as material misrepresentation, even something as simple as listing the wrong eye color. But only serious and/or intentional forms of material misrepresentation that actually change how the insurance company evaluates the policyholder’s health should matter enough to warrant an investigation or claim denial.
Examples of serious material misrepresentation:
- Not disclosing that you smoke or vape
- Not mentioning narcotic use or alcohol addiction
- Not checking off preexisting medical conditions like heart disease
- Not listing dangerous hobbies like skydiving or full-contact sports
If your material misrepresentation was significant as some of the examples listed, then the denial could be justified and might be difficult to challenge. If it was something trivial like hair color, though, then the insurer has made a move to try to reject your claim without proper grounds.
