Complaint: Will not speak to son as representative even though mother had stroke and can't speak on her own behalf. My mother had a massive stroke recently and cannot speak, eat, or walk on her own. Hill Physicians, her insurance company, gave her 2 options to go to rehab, none of which offer Vietnamese speaking staff, which is my mom's first language. San Jose has a much more appropriate rehab center that is out of network, but willing to do a Letter of Agreement with Hill Physicians for payment, so I called the Hill Physicians member services phone line and spoke to a representative. He discussed my moms case briefly with me, but after explaining my request he suddenly refused to speak with me citing that under HIPAA privacy rules they can only speak directly with my mom or her doctor. I told them my mom has physically lost the ability to speak because of the stroke, so a family member must be able to speak on her behalf, but they still refused to speak with any family members other than directly with my mom, which is impossible. I asked to speak to a supervisor or a legal department representative, and the customer service rep refused to transfer me. After multiple attempts, he finally said I could leave a message for his supervisor who was in a meeting but would call me back in 30 minutes. It's now about 5 hours later and the offices are closed, and no one has returned my call. This is an urgent matter as my mother will be transferred out of the hospital and to a rehab facility withing 72 hours.
Desired Settlement: I would like to speak directly to a senior representative at Hill Physicians regarding this matter.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 10, 2013/12/30) */ The member's adult son, who was handling care arrangement for his mother, was under the impression that a request for services had been submitted to Hill Physicians and subsequently denied. A review of the member's record did not indicate receipt of an authorization request. The manager of Customer Service has contacted the member's adult son to apologize for the confusion on the phone and explain how the member's physician can submit an authorization request, if desired. The member's adult son indicates satisfaction with his mother's care facility and is no longer actively seeking a transfer to an out-of-network facility. We apologize for the inconvenience of the HIPAA screening questions and acknowledge that the caller did provide sufficient information to speak on his mother's behalf. To reduce the likelihood of any such incidents in the future, we are coaching the agent who handled the call and re-emphasizing screening protocols to our entire team.
