|Oregon Citizens Now Can Get Help On HMO Claim Denials|
July 3, 2002
Excerpt: Consumers facing a health insurer's refusal to authorize care can now appeal to an impartial expert, under a state law that took effect Monday.

Oregon is the 42nd state to require binding outside reviews of health plan denials.
