Disability Claim Denials, Filing Disability Claims, Publications/Articles

We have been counting down the list of the 10 Biggest Legal Mistakes Physicians Make When Filing a Claim for Disability. Today we post the number one mistake physicians make when filing a disability claim.

MISTAKE NO. 1: Failing to Consult With Counsel

Physicians who are considering filing a claim on their disability insurance policy should meet with an attorney experienced in disability insurance before they submit their claim. Disability insurance policies vary in their terms and conditions, and the scope of coverage is commonly narrowed through the use of qualifying words and phrases. Each policy must be individually reviewed to determine if it covers a particular claim and equally importantly, how that claim is best presented to ensure payment.

Action Step: Physicians should consult with an attorney and make a coordinated effort in interpreting their policy, presenting their claim, and providing supporting information to the insurer.
