CareFirst of Maryland Wins Claim in Federal Court Against Family of Nursing Home Patient

CareFirst of Maryland fought off a lawsuit in federal court last week alleging that its denial of claims for a woman with Alzheimer in a nursing home during the last years of her life violated her health insurance contract with CareFirst.

There is some interesting commentary in the opinion about the deference due to a treating doctor and exceptions to be made to the deference that might be of interest to personal injury lawyers in Maryland.
