Successfully Helped a Military Family with a Health Insurance Issue
While a soldier was away from his family for training, his daughter was in a major accident that required an expensive emergency surgery. The soldier’s wife was coerced into signing documents concerning insurance and medical bills at the hospital before the emergency surgery. The soldier’s family needed assistance in negotiating the debt connected to the medical bills. The soldier discussed this matter with a military attorney, who then referred this case to the ABA Military Pro Bono Project, which connected the soldier’s family to a volunteer attorney. The volunteer attorney resolved the insurance debt collection issue such that the family no longer owed any debt for this surgery.
