A jury in Colorado has ruled that Time Insurance Company, a health insurance company, must pay $37 million to a woman whose health insurance policy was canceled after she was seriously injured in a car accident. The insurance company said the woman had failed to disclose previous medical treatments, namely an emergency room visit for shortness of breath and treatment for uterine prolapse, when she took out the policy. You are probably wondering, “what in the world does that have to do with the auto accident?” The insurer refused to cover $185,000 in medical bills incurred as a result of the accident and then canceled the woman’s policy.
The Plaintiff, a former preschool teacher, now supports her four children on Social Security disability payments. Time Insurance Co., which also does business as Assurant Health, says it will appeal the jury’s verdict. The Plaintiff’s lawyer, Marc Levy, of Greenwood Village-based Levy, Morse & Wheeler, represented the Plaintiff and did a very good job for her.
