Today, the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a hearing entitled "Terminations of Individual Health Policies by Insurance Companies." The hearing examined the practice of "post-claims underwriting," which occurs when insurance companies cancel individual health insurance policies after providers submit claims for medical services rendered.

Peggy Raddatz testified about her brother's experience:

What the Fortis Insurance Company did was unethical. To deny a dying person necessary medical treatment based upon medical conditions a patient has never had knowledge of, never complained about or never been treated for is cruel.

It is our hope that this information will benefit other patients who are in need of life saving medical treatments and who do not have the knowledge or means necessary to fight against the health insurance companies. It is further our desire to expose these practices of Fortis Insurance Company so that others do not suffer as their victims.
