Hyatt Legal Plan
The Hyatt Legal Plan provides benefits for you and your eligible dependents through easy, low cost access to a wide variety of personal legal services. Enrollment is required before coverage can begin.
The Plan features in-network and out-of-network options:
- In-network benefits - All covered services are received from a Hyatt network legal provider, are paid in full, and you have no claims to file
- Out-of-network benefits - You may choose a legal provider outside the Hyatt network and be reimbursed using a fee schedule.
The following is a listing of the personal legal services covered by the Legal Plan when you choose an in-network legal provider:
- Consumer protection matters
- Debt collection defense
- Document preparation such as deeds, mortgages, notes, demand letters, affidavits
- Identity theft defense
- Immigration assistance
- Juvenile court defense
- Living trusts (not tax planning)
- Living wills
- Name change
- Personal bankruptcy
- Powers of attorney
- Pre-marital agreement
- Restoration of driver's license (except DUI)
- Review of personal legal documents
- Small claims assistance
- Tenant and eviction problems (tenant only)
- Uncontested adoption
- Uncontested guardianship and conservatorship
- Traffic ticket defense (except DUI)
- Wills (not tax planning)
In-network discounts are available on probate and personal injury. Office consultation and telephone advice is available on virtually any personal legal matter. To find a participating attorney in your area, visit the Hyatt Legal website and use password 3090010 in the “Thinking About Enrolling” section.
Excluded from coverage are any business-related matters including rental property, and issues relating to your employer, appeals, class action suits, and any matter where a spouse or dependent's interest might conflict with yours. The Legal Plan fully covers in-network attorney fees for covered services, but does not cover any third-party costs such as filing fees, recording costs, depositions, fines, and court costs.
Coverage is not available under the plan in cases where you are currently receiving or have received legal services before your enrollment is effective or before you have received a case number from Hyatt Legal Plans.
If you don't find your type of case in the Types of Services Included or Types of Services Excluded described above, the Plan covers your initial consultation. Some common examples are divorce, tax problems or child support. After the covered consultation, you may need representation that is not covered by the plan. If you hire a network attorney to handle a non-covered case, the attorney will tell you what the fee will be before your case begins.
Hyatt Legal encourages potential enrollees to call the Client Service Center during the enrollment process. This can provide a high comfort level for employees who are in the process of making an enrollment choice. The Hyatt Legal representatives will be happy to answer questions concerning the location of plan attorneys, how to go out of network, etc. Hyatt Legal representatives will also mail or fax definitions of covered services to employees who want more detailed information.
All Banner Health employees (enrolled or not) have access to Hyatt Legal's toll free number (800) 821-6400 (Monday 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., Tuesday - Thursday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. Eastern Time). A current list of attorneys will be mailed to you upon request. You may also visit the web site at www.legalplans.com, use Password 3090010 in the “Thinking About Enrolling” section.
A Hyatt Client Service Representative will confirm that you are enrolled, give you a case number and the names, addresses and phone numbers of nearby network attorneys. You then call the attorney to set an appointment. Most network attorneys schedule appointments in the evenings or on Saturdays, so you don't have to miss work. If you wish, you may also choose an out-of-network attorney and receive reimbursement for covered services according to a set schedule of fees.
