The Insurance Company Cannot Force You To Hire A Certain RooferPosted July 28, 2015
The business of insurance is not necessarily one of protecting people; it is a business of making money. The reason that medical insurance companies will try to steer you away from certain medical providers is that in-house providers may have agreed to a lower percentage of profits in their contracts. Limiting your options legally creates a baseline for profits that the insurance companies definitely do not want to give up.
The medical industry is a special case in that there are not many other industries with the leeway that insurance companies have in medicine. For instance, if you are trying to get your roof repaired under the auspices of your insurance contract, your insurance company cannot force you into using a certain roofer.
As stated above, an insurance company may strike deals with certain roofing companies in your area. These roofers will accept a lower payment for the higher volume of work that an insurance company can usually provide. However, the roofing company may not have the highest quality work. Because they are not being paid as much, they may not take as much pride in your job as another roofing company might. This is the number one reason that you need to be free to choose your own company when it comes to something as essential as your home.
Do not take no for an answer if your insurance company attempts to force you into using a particular roofing company. You should redouble your efforts if this roofing company does not have a stable reputation in your area. There is no reason that you have to put up with this kind of mistreatment, and hiring the right insurance attorney will ensure that you have the law on your side if you have to take your case to court.
You do not have the time to look up all of the laws and precedents that will likely come into play if you take your insurance company to court. You can bet they will have plenty of lawyers on their side, so even the playing field by making sure that you have a reputable insurance attorney on your side as well.
