Type One Diabetes and Your Rights to Long Term Disability Benefits
Type One diabetes can be a disabling condition that prevents you from working. During your illness, treatment and recovery, long term disability benefits may be able to help you offset lost wages if you purchased a disability plan from a private insurer or have coverage through an employer. If you have been diagnosed with Type One diabetes there are many complications of your disease that the long term disability carriers fail to consider.
According to a report from the Doctor’s Lounge, when medical researchers tracked a group of Type One diabetics, many suffered from complications: 57% developed eye problems, 13% developed kidney disease, 60% developed nerve damage and 50% developed cardiovascular disease.
Unfortunately, many long term disability carriers failed to consider the complications of diabetes in evaluating your entitlement or continued right to long term disability benefits.
