No. 11 – Can I refuse to attend a neuropsychological exam at a long-term disability carrier?
If a long-term disability carrier is scheduling you for a neuropsychological exam, I strongly suggest that you contact an attorney like Nancy Cavey immediately! Nancy Cavey is familiar with the neuropsychologists routinely used by long-term disability carriers.
We won’t ever refuse an exam, but there are a number of things that can be done to protect your interests. These include: (1) obtaining your own neuropsychological exam before attending the long-term disability carrier’s neuropsychological exam; (2) videotaping the independent medical examination;
(3) limit the carrier’s neuropsychological review to the raw data of your examination.
To discuss this, and any other issues you have with your long-term disability claim, or for assistance in filing your long-term disability/ERISA claim, contact Nancy Cavey at www.caveylaw.com.
Nancy’s new book on the mistakes that you can make in dealing with the insurance company will soon be published and will be made available at her website at Caveylaw.com
