Insurance companies have a legal obligation to act in good faith when dealing with policyholders. They should not actively try to find ways to deny or undervalue claims, or use delay tactics to put off payment. Unfortunately, they do not always act with policyholders’ best interests in mind.

Denied Claims & Bad Faith Practices
Insurance claims may be wrongly denied by providers who do not uphold their obligation to exercise good faith and fair dealing when handling a claim.
This can occur in different ways, by:
- Failing to properly process a claim
- Failing to process a claim in a timely manner
- Improperly or inadequately investigating a claim
- Delaying payment on a valid claim
- Unreasonably denying a claim
- Retroactively cancelling a policy without just cause
