Examinations Under Oath (EUO) and Other Insurance Carrier Demands
When insurance carriers suspect that a claim may have been fraudulently
made, they have a right to subject both the physician and the patient
to an Examination Under Oath (EUO). The insurance company can request
this EUO at any time before the claim is finalized. During the process,
you will be sworn in under oath and the attorney from the insurance carriers
will ask you a series of questions that they believe are relevant to the
claim at hand. The answers that you provide will then be recorded, and
the entire process may last several hours. If you are facing an EUO, seek
the immediate assistance of Russell Friedman & Associates.

What Types of Questions Will I Be Asked?
While many of the questions that you will be asked may seem irrelevant
and absurd, the EUO is very important. Information that is obtained can
be used to determine the liability of each party and even be used to deny
your claim. In addition to this, if you refuse to show up for the EUO,
the insurance company can also use your lack of compliance as a reason
to deny your claim.
Some of the questions you may be asked during an EUO may involve:
- Your finances
- Your employees
- Your referral sources
- Your contracts
- Your insurance application
The Declaratory Judgement Actions Filed By Insurance Carriers Against Healthcare Companies
Have you been sued by an insurance carrier for the following:
1. Failure to attend an EUO?
2. Attending and EUO but not “fully cooperating”?
3. Attending an EUO and answering questions in a way which the insurance
carrier decides your claims are not suitable for payment?
If so, Russell Friedman & Associates will represent you and your practice
in fighting the issuance carrier for your right to be compensated for
the healthcare services which your practice rendered to its patients.
