It is common for claimants to suffer from multiple medical conditions. It is also possible that more than one of them alone causes a disability. If you have multiple medical conditions, you should include them all in your disability insurance claim.
The first thing you should do is review your disability insurance policy. The policy may include limitations or exclusions for certain medical conditions. This could mean that one of your disabling conditions is limited to 24 months of benefits. In that case, you do not want to limit yourself to just that condition when you have other conditions that are also, alone, disabling.
There are common limitations and exclusions we see in LTD policies, such as:
Mental health limitations
Self-reported symptom limitations
Pre-existing condition exclusion or limitation
Neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, soft tissue dossier, and chronic fatigue syndrome limitation
Once you know what your policy says, if anything, about limitations and exclusions, you should include everything that is related to your disability. Of course, it is important you have medical evidence supporting these conditions. This could include:
