My COBRA was cancelled...

My COBRA was cancelled after my checking account was closed due to fraud and the payment was denied. I thought I had already given them the new account number

Lawyer's Assistant: Because consumer protection law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Georgia

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I filed an initial appeal and it was denied...it was called Escalation Form. I am working on the next appeal letter

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am on COBRA due to losing my job after medical issue and going on STD, now LTD...I worked for the same company my insurance is through. I have an expensive medical history and think that is why they don't want to reinstate. I met my out of pocket in May.

What information should I include in my 2nd Appeal to COBRA? I was told by a friend that I should call my employer so I called HR but they were of no help
A detailed narrative relating to the cancellation and circumstances surrounding end of employment.You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way.martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.if I can elaborate on anything, just ask me.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”
