Health Care Section

  • You've heard the stories, or maybe you've lived them. A health insurance company denying life-saving medical treatment. Health care insurers delaying payment to hospitals and doctors so long that the bill collectors are at the door. Then there's that specialist that you really need to see but the insurance company says "no." Now, thanks to the Attorney General's Health Care Section, you have somewhere to turn.

    Among the first of its kind in the nation, the Health Care Section helps Pennsylvanians secure the treatment they need. The Health Care Section aims to protect the public from unfair health care business practices and help shape Pennsylvania's policies in favor of the consumer.
