IL governor signs bill allowing some residents to get second opinion on denied medical claims

Chicago Tribune, January 6, 2010

More than 3 million Illinois residents, particularly those who buy health insurance on their own or get it from a small employer, will have the right to get their denied medical claims reviewed by an independent health expert under legislation signed into law by Gov. Pat Quinn, the Chicago Tribune reports. The bill allows consumers in state-regulated health plans who are denied a medical claim to request a review by a physician who is independent of the insurance company and at the plan's expense.
