What Does It Mean When an Insurance Policy is “Rescinded?”

Seeking to avoid "losses" on expensive claims—usually associated with life-threatening or chronic medical conditions, or with injuries sustained after serious accidents—health insurance companies retroactively rescinded coverage citing a provision in many health insurance policies permitting rescission if information on the insured's application was "misrepresented."

In these cases, typically, the insurance company was not required to establish that the insured intentionally or knowingly made misrepresentations on his or her application. Accordingly, when presented with claims, some insurance companies would look for discrepancies between the information contained in an insured's application for coverage and the insured's medical records to support rescission, and to deny the claims.
