Pain Management Physician Disability Claims

Disability Insurance Claims for Physicians

Your day-to-day duties as a pain management physician, specialist, or doctor are sure to be stressful. It is up to you to identify the source of your patient’s pain, create accurate diagnoses, and recommend treatment methods. However, your job can get complicated when you are suffering from serious pain and health complications yourself.

At Dabdoub Law Firm, we can help you file for individual income disability benefits as a pain management physician. For years, we have been there to support and guide medical professionals from all practice types and in all 50 states.

Some disability insurance policies and claims are governed by ERISA law while others, especially doctors, purchase their own individual disability insurance.

Long term disability claims are all we do here at Dabdoub Law Firm, too. We do not distract ourselves with other practice areas, and our disability lawyers work directly with our clients. From beginning to end, your claim will be managed by a team of legal professionals who genuinely care about you and your future wellbeing.

What to Expect with a Disability Insurance Claim

Depending on your role in your medical group or who is your employer, you may have your disability insurance provider by your own employer, an overall insurance group, or a private plan you purchased yourself.

In any circumstance, the purpose of your disability insurance plan is providing you with necessary financial benefits after you can no longer continue working as normal due to a disabling condition. Insurance companies have notoriety for finding ways to deny disability claims, even when it is clear that you have a disability that prevents you from working as a pain management physician.

Typically, after you submit a claim for disability insurance benefits, the insurance company will begin the claim review process. This entails requesting:

  • all your medical records;
  • your doctors complete an Attending Physician Statement;
  • you complete a claim form explaining your condition and occupation.

Of course, this is not all a disability insurance claim entails. In fact, disability claim reviews can be extensive and intrusive. For this reason, it is important to know what documents and information your insurance carrier is entitled to obtain and those that it is not.

Understanding your disability insurance policy and the law is crucial to protecting your rights to collect disability benefits and limiting intrusive investigation by an insurance company. In our experience, insurance companies fish for documents it can use to reframe a physician’s occupation into some, less demanding occupation. A barrage of continuing document requests is another tactic used to delay making a decision.

In sum, knowing what to expect with a disability insurance claim and how to respond is crucial to protecting your right to disability income benefits.
