I bought travel/ticket insurance for an airline ticket I purchased on November 14, 2011 - one way from Yuma, AZ to Portland, OR.  On November 17, 2011 my travel partner went in for his routine yearly physical including bloodwork.  On November 18, 2011 my travel partner found out his blood work indicated he needed to stay in Portland an extra 2 weeks to address unexpected results regarding his kidneys.  I could not postpone the trip and therefore filed the claim to recoup the cost of my airline ticket on US Airways.

I  filed a claim with Access America and included the physician's report, the receipt for my airline ticket and the receipt for the travel insurance I purchased through them.  I mailed AND faxed the claim with all the required attachments on December 9, 2011.
On December 14, 2011 I received the following judgment from Access America:
