CIGNA REVERSES LTD CLAIM DENIAL ON APPEAL

SMDA recently convinced Cigna to overturn a claims denial decision by filing a comprehensive administrative appeal of the LTD claims denial decision.

SMDA was hired by a client who worked for Norwegian Cruise Lines who developed significant back problems. His back problems became so severe that he was put off the ship by the ship's doctor and shortly thereafter underwent back surgery. He did his best to return to work but continued to experience significant problems. The ship's doctor again discharged him from the ship.

Despite this information, CIgna originally denied his claim for LTD insurance benefits. SMDA convinced Cigna to reverse its denial decision after obtaining, reviewing and analyzing the voluminous medical records and explaining why he continued to satisfy the insurance policy's definition of disability.

This is another example of how important a comprehensive and multifaceted administrative appeal is in these LTD benefit claims.
