In Your Corner TV – Season 1 Episode 10
FEATURED ON THIS EPISODE…
► 2:02 – RECENT SUCCESS STORY – Sivan Tumarkin discusses the experience a marketing executive had with her long-term disability insurance provider who denied her claim because they disagreed with her doctors’ recommendations.
► 6:23 – A caller from The Employment Hour: I was injured, and had procedures done on my back. While I was off on long-term disability, the insurance company said I didn’t meet the requirements for permanent disability. I was cut off LTD, and was told to return to work or face termination.
► 3 Signs the Insurance Company May Be About to Deny Your LTD Claim
• 12:37 – They’ve asked you to attend an assessment with one of their doctors or consultants
• 14:48 – They’ve suggested that you should start a gradual return to work program
• 16:39 – They told you or suggested to you that they checked your social media posts, or conducted surveillance on you (insurance company surveillance)
► 20:09 – email@example.com – My wife suffers from an auto immune disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, depression and chronic fatigue. Her family doctor, rheumatologist and psychologist all agree that she can’t work, yet the insurance company says that she won’t get LTD because she doesn’t have enough medical documentation. Is there a point in appealing this decision? She already gets CPP Disability.
► 26:28 – My Disability Questions – A very close friend was denied LTD and her doctor at the rehab centre she goes to said that he will help her appeal the denial. She is 56 and had a stroke that caused her some paralysis and issues with focus and concentration. Should her doctor be doing this? Is there a risk in her appealing with his help?
