Eating Disorder Treatment Insurance Lawyers in Seattle

Dealing with an Insensitive Insurance Company?

Eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating are often devastating and require specific treatments to alleviate. The treatments required can be expensive, even with health insurance coverage. The situation will only get worse, though, if your health insurance provider does not want to take your case seriously and denies your treatment claims without due cause.

Kantor & Kantor, LLP has a team of Seattle eating disorder treatment insurance claim attorneys who are dedicated to going above and beyond for our clients when they need us the most. We know that you are going through enough as it is trying to overcome an eating disorder. To strengthen your chances of receiving the benefits coverage you deserve, we have developed a specialized legal team.

Our legal specialists focus primarily on helping clients with denied claims regarding:

  • Eating disorder treatments
  • Dual diagnosis treatments

Many people with eating disorders also form other dangerous behaviors, like drug dependency. Dual diagnosis treatments attempt to address eating disorders and any of their comorbid conditions. Eating disorder treatments are expensive, but dual diagnosis treatments can be even more expensive. Demand the financial coverage you require by letting our lawyers handle your claim denial and appeal.

Necessary Residential Treatments for Eating Disorders

To successfully treat an eating disorder, inpatient treatment is practically essential. The American Psychiatric Association believes that residential inpatient treatment that keeps a patient close to medical and psychological staff for at least 30 days can noticeably increase the odds of overcoming an eating disorder. Combining inpatient treatment with outpatient treatments afterward is even more effective.

Inpatient treatments are considerably effective for eating disorders, but they are also quite expensive. Many inpatient care centers average at about $30,000 a month for high-level, one-on-one care that best benefits eating disorder patients. Managing those significant costs of care practically requires insurance coverage, which means any insurance denial can be disastrous.

As experienced eating disorder insurance claim attorneys in Seattle, we are familiar with what it takes to show an insurance company that inpatient procedures are medically necessary. Insurance company representatives like to say that inpatient treatments are “optional” because some patients do experience reduced symptoms without inpatient treatment. The truth is that these are isolated, unique incidents that do not disavow the importance of inpatient treatment options for the average anorexia or bulimia patient.

Success Stories for Eating Disorder Claimants

Kantor & Kantor, LLP should be the first and only name in Seattle you trust with your eating disorder insurance claim or case. We have appealed cases to the higher circuit courts in pursuit of doing what is the best for our clients. Our tenacious spirit in and out of court has led to several impressive victories for our clients throughout the years.

To name only a few examples of our case successes for our eating disorder insurance clients:

  • We successfully petitioned the California Department of Managed Health Care for a client with anorexia after her insurance provider denied her coverage, resulting in her discharge from a residential care center.
  • We helped our client seek residential treatments for bulimia after her medical plan refused to provide coverage. After an intense legal battle, she was awarded all benefits.
  • We took a case to trial and then succeeded in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal after our client’s eating disorder was inexplicably excluded from her health insurance plan.

Our attorneys are proud to be legal allies and genuine friends to people in Seattle living with eating disorders who need assistance taking on an insurance company. You should be able to utilize the treatments you need instead of worrying if your insurer will pay for them. To seek a brighter tomorrow without an eating disorder haunting you, let us represent you after your insurance claim was denied.

Client Testimonials

  • With you in my corner, I felt enabled and no longer alone.

    “Seemingly at the end of my rope with nowhere to turn, a friend suggested I call the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, who referred me to you. From our first contact I began to feel hope where there had been none. You took over all communication with the insurance company. You kept me posted as things progressed and advised me as to each necessary action. What a relief you were! With you in my corner, I felt enabled and no longer alone. Some big insurance companies feel emboldened to take arbitrary action against those who do not have the resources to defend what is rightfully theirs. Thank goodness for people like you who advocate for folks in need. In closing, please know how very much our association has meant. You have restored my faith in the goodness of people and renewed my confidence in the future. I am forever grateful.”

  • There are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us.

    “I wanted to thank you again for all of your help. My daughter would not be in treatment without your help. I can never thank you enough, there are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us, and I believe saved my little girl. Taking her back to Timberline Knolls was very difficult in many ways, I wish UBH could know the damage they have done to her by having her go in and out like this. When she went into Timberline Knolls the first time she was not happy to go exactly, no one wants to go into treatment, but she was open to going in and ready, for the first time, to really look at her issues and work hard to get better. When she had to leave Timberline she expressed that she wished she could have stayed because she felt like she was finally at a place where she was getting better and, though it was hard, she was really opening up and dealing with her issues for the first time, something she has had a hard time doing. I just wanted you to know that she was going down to a really bad place and without you I don't know what would have happened except that she would not be at Timberline Knolls right now getting better and I thought you should know this. With unending gratitude.”

  • I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me.

    “I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me. Hopefully I will not ever have the need to refer someone to you because that would mean they would be in a similar situation as myself. But, if that were to ever happen, I would absolutely refer them to your company.”
