Health Insurer’s Denial Supported By The Record, 2nd Circuit Panel Says
(October 20, 2015, 7:34 AM EDT) -- NEW YORK — The Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Oct. 15 determined that a health benefits insurer did not wrongfully deny a claim for residential treatment because four physicians noted in the administrative record that residential treatment was not necessary (Neil Tansey, et al. v. Anthem Health Plans Inc., et al., No. 14-3931, 2nd Cir.; 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 17889).
