Columbus Disability Insurance Claims
Most people living in Columbus, Ohio are getting their disability insurance coverage from their employer. Some of the largest employers in Columbus include Cardinal Health Inc. Pharmaceuticals company, OhioHealth, and United Healthcare. If you work for these companies or most others in the city, then you probably have group insurance disability coverage. Insurance companies that may have sold such a policy to your employer include Hartford, Lincoln Financial, Reliance Standard, etc.
You might instead have disability insurance through an individual disability policy sold by companies like UNUM, MetLife, and more. Physicians typically have disability insurance that insurers their ability to work in their own occupation, such as an interventional cardiologist, emergency room physician or many other medical specialties.
Most disability insurance claims are governed by federal ERISA law. Because this law tends to heavily favor insurance companies, we see disability claims being denied or delayed for false reasons. Some of the tactics used to delay approval of disability claims is requesting the same information over and again or the insurance company may claim it has not received medical records or attending physician statements from your doctor when it was already sent.
Disability insurance companies may also want to send claimants to what it calls an independent medical examination or IME, but it is not truly independent because this examination is done by a doctor chosen and paid for by the company. It is best to consult with a long term disability attorney before going to any examination scheduled by your disability company.
