What Is HMO Liability?

The term HMO liability means that there was withholding by a Health Maintenance Organization that did not give a patient the healthcare that they should’ve gotten. Here are some examples of HMO malpractice:

  • tests being denied or delayed
  • treatment being denied or delayed
  • referral to a specialist being denied or delayed

The hidden corporations that comprise HMOs, along with their reluctance to divulge policy and procedure, complicate a medical negligence or medical malpractice case when an HMO network is introduced as part of a healthcare negligence lawsuit. This also compounds the cost of a suit, as it really becomes two separate cases, since the medical negligence lawyer has to consider the standard of care in the medical negligence case and the case against the HMO.

The Keenan Law Firm is dedicated to fighting the outrage of HMO malpractice and has a decade of experience in the area. The Keenan Law Firm will provide you with an astute and committed healthcare negligence lawyer and will work hard with you to address all aspects of medical negligence that has occurred.

Viable Case

A lot of states cannot allow medical malpractice claims to be brought against an HMO. If there were damages due to the actions of an HMO, the case would have to be through a mandatory arbitration process first in order to have a chance at getting justice. Other states sometimes say that the ERISA or Employee Retirement Income Security Act does not allow patients to bring a claim against an HMO for malpractice.

Recoverable Damages If An HMO Is Liable

  • Additional treatment costs
  • Lost wages and potential lost income earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages
