Otolaryngologist (ENT) Disability Claims
Experienced Long Term Disability Attorneys
Otolaryngologists (ENT) are typically provided long term disability insurance through their employer or purchased their own policy, which is known as an own occupation disability insurance policy. If you work as an otolaryngologist, then you might be covered under a disability insurance policy provided by a company like UNUM, MetLife, Mass Mutual, and many major insurance companies. Being covered does not mean it will be easy to get the benefits you need and deserve, though.
If you are otolaryngologist who is finding it more and more difficult to keep up with your medical practice due to a disabling medical condition, then speak with an experienced attorney at Dabdoub Law Firm. Our law firm is entirely dedicated to disability insurance claims — we are not distracted by any other type of practice area – and the firm has represented physicians from every medical specialty, including ENTs.
Throughout your day as an otolaryngologist, you need to rely on your specialized training to help patients with diseases or disorders related to the ears, nose, and throat (ENT). As many severe illnesses can progress or develop through an ENT infection, it is crucial for an otolaryngologist to be able to reliably perform their work duties and make accurate diagnoses or carry-out procedures. A disabling condition that complicates how you go about work will not only make serious problems for you, but it could jeopardize the wellbeing of your patients.

Possible Medical Conditions Suffered by Otolaryngologists
Being in direct contact with ill patients puts you as an otolaryngologist at risk of catching contagious diseases. Being on your feet all day can also become a problem, especially if you are not given enough time in the day for rest. Regardless of how your medical condition develops, your long term disability insurance provider will try to contest that the condition is disabling enough to warrant benefits.
Disability insurance companies are known to delay paying claims by repeatedly requesting information and documents, including financials or billing information (such as CPT billing codes). Often, insurance carriers deny a claim for total disability by arguing the physician can perform some duties of his or her occupation.
Work-disrupting disabilities that may be suffered by an otolaryngologist:
- Chronic occupational illness
- Chronic pain from long hours walking and standing
- Migraines or frequent headaches
- Carpal tunnel or arthritis
It is worth noting that long term disability benefits can be granted for mental health issues, like depression or anxiety. The busy work of an otolaryngologist can be incredibly stressful, resulting in cognitive harm.
