SMDA convinces LTD Insurer to overturn claims denial decision

SMDA recently convinced an LTD insurer to overturn its claims denial decision by filing a comprehensive administrative appeal on behalf of our client. SMDA’s client had filed a claim for disability benefits as a result of serious depression and anxiety. The LTD insurance company originally denied the claim contending that since the claimant was still able to care for her profoundly disabled teenager she was not entitled to disability benefits.

SMDA successfully pointed out the fallacy of this argument convincing the insurer to retroactively reinstate the disability benefit claim and put the client back on claim.
