Bad Faith Insurance Practices

The failure to deal with a beneficiary of a dental benefit plan fairly and in good faith or an activity which impairs the right of the beneficiary to receive the appropriate benefit of a dental benefits plan or to receive them in a timely manner. Some examples of potential bad faith insurance practices include: evaluating claims based on standards which are significantly at variance with the standards of the community failure to properly investigate a claim for care and unreasonably and purposely delaying and/or withholding payment of a claim. See prompt payment laws.
