Few things are scarier than racking up medical bills and then learning that your health insurance company won't pay. It's a nightmare that could panic any policyholder. But before you worry about sinking into a black hole of medical debt, know that federal law offers a way to appeal. "When a claim is denied, consumers should not view that as the end of the story," says Katherine Vukadin, an assistant professor at Texas Southern University's Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston.
