In Your Corner TV – Season 1 Episode 15
*FEATURED ON THIS EPISODE…*
► 2:02 – RECENT SUCCESS STORY – A military veteran suffering from PTSD went on long-term disability. His psychologist says he is disabled and unable to work. The insurance adjuster sent him to a second assessment, where the doctor said he could return to work. The insurance company cut off his LTD claim.
► 5:51 – A caller from The Employment Hour: I’ve been denied long-term disability twice. They say I don’t have enough medical documentation. I’m still suffering from a concussion I experienced after fainting at work. I tried going back to work on modified duties but it didn’t work out. I’ve also been offered a buy-out package at work. What should I do?
► 3 Ways to Deal with an Aggressive or Bullying Disability Adjuster
• 10:19 – Ask for the manager and request a different case manage for your claim
• 12:22 – Confirm your request in writing, as well as your correspondence with the insurer
• 15:19 – Tell your doctors how the adjuster’s aggressive behaviour is impacting you, and make sure they record it in their notes
► 16:57 – email@example.com – My LTD claim was denied because my insurance adjuster said that my disability is not severe enough and I didn’t try to go back to work. Both my neurologist and dermatologist say that I can’t work but apparently that’s not good enough. I don’t know what to do.
► 22:21 – My Disability Questions – What happens if a long-term disability insurance company accesses a person’s social media account like Facebook and sees that the person was on vacation and has photos of the person enjoying a party? Can they cut the person off because of that? Denied LTD due to social media
► 25:39 – firstname.lastname@example.org – My brother had a brain tumor and was off on disability. He received short and long-term disability but after the surgery the insurance company stopped paying long-term disability benefits because their medical consultant said he should be better. His doctors say there is permanent damage and he’s unable to work. Can we do anything about this?
