FEATURED ON THIS EPISODE…
► 2:23 – RECENT SUCCESS STORY – An ill client was denied long term disability after the insurance company claimed that she wasn’t disabled, despite support from multiple neurologists.
► 5:31 – My wife suffers from depression and anxiety and has been seeing a psychologist for over a year. She applied for long-term disability and we just received a denial from the insurance company despite her doctors saying that she can’t work. She’s 46 years old and worked as an account executive at a large ad company. Is there anything we can do?
► Top 5 Reasons Insurers Give for Denying Claims (and how you should respond)
• 11:39 – You are not “totally disabled”
• 12:40 – Insufficient medical documents supporting your disability
• 14:57 – There is no formal diagnosis for your disability
• 17:12 – You can do another job
• 19:36 – You don’t qualify because of a pre-existing condition
► 25:49 – http://www.mydisabilityquestions.com – My sister is getting long-term disability for chronic pain, sciatica and fibromyalgia. She’s 52 and her insurer wants to pay her up to the 2-year mark and then close her file. Her adjuster is pressuring her to agree, but I think she should call you. What happens if she doesn’t agree to the adjuster’s demands?
