Case #22-0048797

Client seeks assistance with an arbitration hearing in the Court of Common Pleas scheduled for July 14, 2023, at 9:15 am. A response to the complaint is due by December 12, 2022. Client is being sued by Albert Einstein Medical Center for about $13,000 plus interest. In June 2020, Client had a stroke which left her comatose and in need of life-saving brain surgery. Client was initially refused treatment because she was uninsured. However, a case worker at the hospital helped Client’s daughter enroll her in an insurance plan with United Healthcare Community Plan. Client and her daughter believed the procedure was fully covered by the insurance, and did not receive any bills associated with the surgery. Client did not realize she owed any money until she was served. It should be noted that the insurance plan start date is listed as June 30, 2020- the day of her surgery. A volunteer is needed to respond to the complaint and represent the client at the arbitration.
