Join me tonight as I talk with Lisa Kantor, a Los Angeles lawyer and partner in Kantor & Kantor LLP. Lisa Kantor represents people denied health benefits for treatment of both physical and mental illnesses. Most recently, Ms. Kantor has focused her efforts litigating insurance company denials of coverage for residential treatment of eating disorders. Kantor & Kantor is the only law firm in the country with a distinct eating disorder practice staffed with lawyers and other professionals experienced in the specific needs of people who have been denied benefits for eating disorder treatment.

In 2007, she won the first published eating disorder decision in California in which the court applied the state’s mental health parity law to beneficiaries who sought treatment outside California. In August 2012, she won the first federal court ruling that determined health plans must pay for all medically necessary treatment for mental illnesses, including residential treatment.

Hosted by Dr. J. Renae Norton; clinical psychologist and director of The Norton Center for Eating Disorders in Hyde Park, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio.
