Claims Expertise

A high school football player suffered a catastrophic injury during a school-sponsored event, resulting in paraplegia. The policy that had been issued to the school contained a 5 year benefit period, which will help this player's family by covering some of the out of pocket costs not covered under their primary health plan. The family appreciates the high-level service received from the claims adjuster and the payment of some of these out of pocket costs.
