Insurance loophole

http://www.amadirectlink.com/legisltn/rapidresponse.asp

The above link is to the AMA website and is where you can contact your State Represenatives and ask them to vote for a bill that will close a loophole so the insurance companies can not deny a claim if you are hurt in a motorcycle accident. You can email them or do a printed copy and you can mail it to them. I have heard that a personal letter carries more weight than an email. Don

Re: Insurance loophole

This insurance loophole applies to any injury were they think you took any unnecessary risks. Such as playing football/basketball/baseball/hockey/soccer/etc, horseback riding, scuba diving, snowmobiles, rock climbing, official/unofficial car races, Etc, Etc, Etc.

Also, if you have been keeping up on the latest news involving a Wal*Mart employee. If you receive a settlement from a third party, your insurance can sue you to be reimbursed for their expenses. I found this out about 10 years ago when I received a settlement from a work related accident involving a third person. Then my employer wanted & got reimbursed from my settlement for what they had paid out on my medical bills.

Angry Re: Insurance loophole

Last year I got my settlement from my '05 bike accident. $100,000.

Blue Cross: $39,000. A collection agency for the HMO department that decides IF you get the treatment that your doctor says you need: about $16,000 . My lawyer, by our contract should have got $33,541. He took: $21,000. (No more lawyer jokes from me). I ended up with just under $24,000. Frickin' loopholes for the insurance company's.

Smile Re: Insurance loophole

Hi , I got this note form United States Senator (Mi. ) ,Debbie Stabenow . Maybe her bill will get this thing fixed .

------------------------------------------------------

Thank you . . .



. . for contacting me regarding your support for promoting health care parity for individuals participating in legal transportation and recreational activities. I share your view.



As you may know, there is a loophole in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) that allows employers to refuse to offer health care coverage to employees who participate in recreational activities. I am pleased to inform you that I am a cosponsor of the HIPAA Recreational Injury Technical Correction Act (S. 616). This legislation would make it illegal for an employer to discriminate against employees who participate in activities such as motorcycling, snowmobiling, horseback riding, or running by not offering them health insurance. As this bill moves through the legislative process, you can count on my continued support of this issue.



Thank you again for contacting me. Please continue to me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.



Sincerely,

Debbie Stabenow

United States Senator
