DNA Testing Now Being Used for Health Insurance Coverage?
Posted on Feb 16, 2010 2:20pm PST
Some insurance companies are now requiring men to prove their paternity
before they can obtain coverage for their child under their health insurance
policy. The only way to prove one's paternity is by taking a DNA test,
so many men are getting DNA tests in order to obtain the proof they need
to enroll their children on their insurance policy.
DNA testing is the most accurate method of confirming the biological father
a child, and often the only proof accepted by insurance companies and
the court. If you need help
establishing paternity, an attorney at Hutchinson Law can help. Matters involving paternity are
often complex. Sometimes the DNA testing services used are not recognized
by the courts or the insurance company you are dealing with, and therefore
you may need a second test. Other times the child's mother may get
in the way by contesting your paternity. At Hutchinson Law, you can rest
assured you will receive help and guidance from an experienced Jacksonville
paternity lawyer who is truly committed to protecting your interests and
helping you achieve what you set out to do.
Particularly in regards to health insurance coverage, we can help whether
you are trying to get your child included in your policy, or if a woman
is claiming you are the father of her child and wants you to provide coverage.
If you don't think the child is yours, we can help you obtain a paternity
test. If the test results indicate you are not the biological father you
will not be held responsible for providing insurance coverage.
