Disability insurance companies don’t always make it easy for policyholders who have epilepsy to get the disability benefits they deserve. More than 3 million Americans have epilepsy, and each year more than 200,000 cases are diagnosed.
How Do Disability Carriers View Epilepsy Disability Claims?
Many disability claims for epilepsy are denied because the disability insurance company says:
(1) There is no objective basis of the epilepsy diagnosis,
(2) There is no objective basis for the restrictions and limitations assigned by your physician, or
(3) There is no causal relationship between your epilepsy diagnosis and/or your restrictions and limitations, and your inability to do your own or any occupation.
