How Can We Help?
In recent years, more and more fibromyalgia suffers are being forced to turn to their long term disability insurance plans for support while they are unable to work. The increase in claims has led the courts to research and eventually accept fibromyalgia as a disabling condition. This means that the insurance carrier who offers your LTD plan must treat your symptoms in the same manner as any other disabling condition, including caner, Multiple Sclerosis or bipolar disorder. The court’s decision to label fibromyalgia as a disabling condition has opened the doors to sufferers seeking LTD benefits.
Unfortunately, many fibromyalgia suffers are continually denied claims they are entitled to. Insurance carriers cite a lack of objective diagnosis and testing as the reasoning behind many of their denials; in short, they claim that since you cannot scientifically prove your disability, they should not pay your claim.
Our staff has represented countless clients throughout the LTD claims and appeals process. We know what information the insurance companies often demand before approving your claim, and will help you obtain and organize this key documentation in a manner that offers you the best chance of filing a successful disability claim for benefits. Should your claim be denied, we will help you draft an appeal, and will stand by your side all the way through the appeals process, and the optional federal review proceedings, until we have helped you obtain the benefits you qualify for under your policy.
