Appeal to the grievance cell of your insurance company but they won't do a thing so then take the matter to the insurance ombudsman who gives a fair ruling usually in my experience


Are you able to get the approval from insurance company?

Hi Bala,

I am helping out my aunt who finds her claim for Herceptin meds rejected by the Insurance company. I am a lawyer, so definitely not letting this deficiency of service slip. My plan of action is to get the rejection in writing, and proceed with the ombudsman process. I will let you know soon on the progress of the claim. I am ready to approach the Consumer Redressal Forum if the Ombudsman rejects my claim.

That is the best in-writing proof you have. Let me know if Ombudsman rejects your claim. I will take it up pro-bono at the Consumer forum. (no solicitation intended)
