If your application for long-term disability benefits was denied, let one of our lawyers help you navigate the internal appeal process. We can help you submit a letter of disagreement to the insurance company within 30 days or 60 days and provide any additional documentation necessary. It will be accompanied by either an argument, additional evidence, or both. This letter begins the process of appealing a long-term disability claim in Barrie.
The rules and regulations for appealing a claim for long-term disability will be outlined in the terms of the contract itself. Your right to appeal will be defined in your contract, and you will have to follow the policies and procedures that are outlined therein.
Filing an appeal involves trying to convince the insurance company that they have made a mistake by denying you. The only way to do this is by gathering further evidence from the physician who indicates that you are more disabled than the insurance company has given you credit for.
Evidence of your condition’s severity and impact on your ability to work has to come from your doctor for the insurance company to give it any weight. If an applicant does not put forward the most compelling medical record, their case is doomed. Not putting in appropriate medical evidence from their treating doctor and their specialist is fatal for a long-term disability appeal in Barrie.
