CIGNA agrees to overturn Long Term Disability claim denial decision

The attorneys at SMDA were recently able to get Cigna (Life Insurance Company of North America) to overturn the claim denial decision for Long Term Disability insurance benefits for a client who had developed significant and progressive cognitive problems.

The client underwent neuropsychiatric testing which confirmed a number of impairments including to his memory, information processing,  focus and attention.  MRI testing confirmed some non-specific changes in the brain.

SMDA convinced CIGNA to approve and pay the claim including all past due benefits.
