Good morning,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I have been a licensed attorney for more than 3 decades. Please don't confuse excellent service with a satisfactory outcome based on your wants and desires. I can only explain the law to you---not guarantee that you will be happy with the outcome---any more than a cancer surgeon can guarantee a cure.
Once you fell 90 days in arrears on the premium, the insurance company had the right to terminate your policy. The fact that they cashed a late check was just how the company processes checks and does not mean that you have a legal argument against cancellation.
Unfortunately, they may retroactively cancel the policy----even though your late check was cashed, and not provide you coverage after the cancellation. Their only obligation is to return your premium that you paid.

Yes, unfortunately, payments made during a period of the policy which was ultimately cancelled and result in the insurance company demanding that the providers return the payments based on the cancellation.
So if the cancellation date was made retroactive to the first month of the 3 months that you did not pay the premium---resulting in the cancellation, the insurance company may ask the providers to refund those payments.
