How Your Doctor Can Destroy Your Long Term Disability Claim | LTD Attorney
What: Doctors and Your Long Term Disability Claim
Unfortunately, some treating physicians are uncooperative and don’t want to get involved in Long Term Disability claims. Because they choose not to get involved, Long Term Disability carriers, like UNUM, will interpret the doctor’s failure to get involved to mean that you have no restrictions and limitation and are not entitled to Long Term Disability benefits. Even if your doctor states that he only treats you and hasn’t evaluated your restrictions and limitations, the carrier will misconstrue that comment.
If your treating doctor is unwilling to help you with your Long Term Disability claim you, unfortunately, have a difficult decision to make. You may have to change doctors and find one that would be willing to deal with all the paperwork that the Long Term Disability Insurance company provides.
