I feel as though I was given information which was a misrepresentation of the facts regarding a medical insurance policy. This policy was sold to me while I was still a resident in Canada but did not come into effect until I moved to the USA. In a nutshell this policy was a non deductible and a no copay. It was also a limited policy which meant in their words, it was limited because it did not cover maternity, mental health problems and alcoholic recovery programs. (which I find out later that that was not the actual definition of the 'limitedJA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: ArizonaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, I have all the information documented along with the names of the people I spoke with from the insurance company.JA: Was this discussed with a manager, HR, or an attorney?Customer: No. This policy was not through a company.
