Washington D.C. Disability Insurance Cases
Washington D.C. is a city that attracts people from all over the world. As the capital city of the United States, many people visiting Washington D.C. are actually from other countries, such as business executives looking to gain a foothold in America. Domestic businesses are also drawn to the city to try to collect their share of the constantly circulating economic market there. As a result, most people living in Washington D.C. are getting their long term disability insurance benefits from an employer.
Some of the biggest employers in Washington D.C. are Marriott International, Booz Allen Hamilton, Verizon Communications, and the Lockheed Martin Corporation. If you work for any of these companies, then your disability insurance is likely provided through a policy sold by Hartford, Lincoln Financial, UNUM, CIGNA or LINA, Prudential, or another major insurer. Policies provided by these companies are most likely governed through ERISA law, a federal statute.
You might be self-employed or act as an independent contractor in Washington, D.C. The city definitely has the business market for world-class entrepreneurs. If you are covered through an individual disability insurance plan, then it might have been provided to you by AXA Equitable, MetLife, Principal Financial, or another such insurance company. You may even be self-employed and capable of buying an insurance plan of this purpose.
Washington D.C. Disability Insurance Denials
Insurance companies use various tactics to delay or deny disability benefits. At a minimum, the insurance company will have their own physician review medical records and give an opinion on whether the claimant is disabled. The problem is, many of these physicians do not even see patients of their own and instead work solely for insurance companies. The physician does not speak with the insured and often just makes a decision based on limited medical information.
Another tactic used to deny long term disability claims are so called independent medical examinations, or IMEs. This is where a disability insurance company sends an insured for a medical examination by a doctor it chooses. IMEs are not always independent. You should consult an experienced disability attorney if you are being sent to a medical examination – whether an IME, a neuropsychological evaluation, or some other medical tests or exam.
