While both aJust and claim attorneys can help you fight health insurance claim denials, there are some key differences in the way they go about this. A health insurance lawyer may charge a high hourly rate or a hefty fee up front before you know whether or not you will win your appeal. With aJust, you only pay a percentage of your reimbursement once you’ve won your appeal. If the appeal is unsuccessful, there is no cost to you.

In short, no. Your health insurer may allow unlimited appeals for their appeal; however, you are often permitted only one appeal for external appeals.
For internal appeals, your health insurance company must respond / make a decision within 60 days if it’s an appeal for a service you have already received. If you have yet to receive the service and it’s a pre-authorized denial, your health insurance company must make a decision within 30 days.
For external appeals, decisions are typically made within 45 days of receiving the request. In some cases you may be able to expedite the external review and receive an answer in less than 72 hours.
While the process of fighting a medical claim denial varies from state to state, here are the basic steps you may follow:
Fighting an insurance claim denial can be a time-consuming and exhausting process, especially if you are handling it alone. That’s why using aJust’s services can take the burden off your shoulders while also setting you up for success.
There are a variety of reasons, but ultimately with a medical claim denial, the health insurer is stating that the service an individual received does not fall under the health insurance plan. Here are a few reasons why a health insurance provider would determine they are not responsible for paying the claim:
Sometimes, certain health services require your health insurance provider to approve or deny responsibility before the healthcare service has been provided. This is called a pre-authorization or prior authorization. You are able to fight a pre-authorization denial as well as a regular denial.
A health insurance claim denial is when your health insurer declares they are not responsible for paying / reimbursing for the care that has already been provided. The responsibility to pay the medical bill is then shifted back to you.
A health insurance claim is a request submitted to your health insurance provider – typically by your health care provider but sometimes by you – that seeks reimbursement for the cost of the care received.
For example, if you go to your family doctor for an annual check-up that involves a blood test and hearing exam, your doctor’s office will submit a list of costs to your insurance company for each service that was provided. Your insurance provider will then determine what percentage of the costs you will be responsible for based on the co-pay, deductible, out of pocket maximum, and coverage of your plan. They will then pay the rest of the claim bill.
When you submit a photo or a scan of a receipt or any document (e.g. explanation of benefits), the file should be less than 5 MB. Most file types are accepted: JPEG/JPG, PDF, PNG, TIFF.
No. There are no limits.
Yes, aJust will handle an appeal of a denial of a prior authorization request. The process is similar to that for handling a denied claim but does require more work with your doctor to document your condition and reasons for the requested treatment.
No. At this time aJust only handles claims for health insurance for humans.
Most insurance providers require that initial claims be filed within 1 year of the date of service.
Most insurance providers require that appeals be filed with 30-60 days after the claim is denied.
Most state review boards require that appeals be filed with 30-60 days after the appeal is denied by your insurance provider.
Denied claims will have to be appealed to your insurance provider first. If that is denied, then a separate appeal must be filed with your state insurance review board. Most insurance providers will provide a response within 30-45 days. State review boards generally respond within 30-60 days.
There are a lot of variables that come into play to determine the potential reimbursement of any claim: the type of claim, what stage you are at in the process (appealing to insurance provider or state), reason for the denial, coverage information (deductibles, coinsurance, etc.), exclusions, whether it’s a state or federally governed plan. Unfortunately, no one has a crystal ball and we cannot win every claim but our experience shows that we can get reimbursement for the majority of denied claims that we handle.
All of your data is encrypted at all steps in the process and aJust follows HIPAA- compliant guidelines and industry best practices to help ensure your personal data is confidential and secure.
We will file the claim or appeal as soon as we get all the information that we need.
In order to represent you with your insurance provider, we will need your basic information (name, email, contact info) plus a copy of your insurance card (front and back), and copies of any correspondence with your insurance provider and your medical receipts.
