Cigna Makes Client With Lyme Disease Jump Through Hoops To Get STD Benefits
When our client applied for short-term disability (STD) benefits, Cigna kept sending her letters and requesting more and more information. Based in Los Angeles, California, our client’s case was simple and straightforward. She was suffering from a severe Lyme Disease flare-up and needed time off work to seek treatment and recover.
Fortunately, our client reached out to Dabdoub Law Firm to make the process easier.
Details of Our Client’s Lyme Disease Flare-Up
Our client took a step back from work when symptoms caused by her Lyme Disease became debilitating.
Her multi-system symptoms, restrictions, and limitations included:
- Pain in the hands and multiple joints
- Musculoskeletal pain
- Low energy
- Mental fog and cognitive impairment
- Difficulty breathing
- Inability to focus
- Restrictions on typing
- Inability to complete tasks
Our client and her primary physician are hopeful that she will recover and be able to return to work. Nevertheless, our client’s doctor warns she may have episodic flare-ups that will periodically prevent her from performing the functions of her job. Working during a flare-up will only exacerbate our client’s symptoms and make it harder for her to recover.
How Dabdoub Law Firm Fought for STD Benefits
Because Cigna was struggling to keep up with our client’s case, we provided all of her forms, medical records, and other pieces of evidence in one convenient document. With the strong evidence in favor of continued disability, Cigna had little choice but to approve our client’s STD benefits.
We hope this gives our client the time she needs to recover, and we are here for her in the event of any future flare-ups or challenges with Cigna.
