The answer to this question depends on the type of insurance (e.g., Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance). However, if a health insurer refuses to pay a claim or ends coverage, the patient can appeal the decision and ask for a review by a third party. Insurers are required to explain why a claim was denied or coverage ended and inform customers about how to appeal decisions.
