In Your Corner TV – Season 1 Episode 13
FEATURED ON THIS EPISODE…
► 0:32 – 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.
► 4:45 – A caller from http://www.employmenthour.com: I applied for long-term disability when I became sick. I was denied long-term disability due to “insufficient information” even though I had support from my doctor and psychiatrist. I appealed the LTD denial and was denied a second time. They’re looking into it again, but I’m running out of money. This whole process has taken over a year and a half. Should I appeal an LTD denial?
► Top 3 Things You Should Absolutely NOT Tell Your Insurance Adjuster
• 12:59 – That you’re generally feeling better than you really are
• 14:46 – That you’re not complying with treatments because you’ve simply given up
• 17:14 – That you think you’ll be ready to go back to work when your doctor advises that you should not
► 21:08 – email@example.com – Last year my son was injured in an assault. His therapist and psychologist say he has PTSD, and he can’t go back to work. He was denied LTD because the insurance company feels that he can go back to work. He’s all but given up and I’m afraid that he’ll become suicidal.
► 26:18 – http://www.mydisabilityquestions.com – Does a disabled person have to travel for hours (let’s say 5 or 6 hours) just to see an insurance doctor for an assessment that’s been arranged by the insurance company?
