Did Your Insurance Deny You a Medicare Advantage Service? Appeal it. Here’s How.

If you’re denied a service under your Medicare Advantage plan, appeal it.



90% of the time, you’ll win.

If they won’t, do it yourself. Here’s a great primer that shows you how.



You have nothing to lose—except your good health.
