Taking Disability Issues To The CEO – Does It Help?


Friday, August 21st, 2009

An article in this week’s Wall Street Journal explores the strategy of consumers who try to solve healthcare problems by going straight to the top – calling the company’s Chief Executive Officer. A consumer who couldn’t get bills paid sent an email to the CEO, a group of reporters and even Michael Moore, filmmaker of “Roger & Me” and other documentaries that skewer (deservedly so) various businesses. The insurance company paid up.

Earlier this year, we reported on a Florida man who was being delayed by Standard Insurance. He contacted Good Morning Americas and the day after a segment on his situation was broadcast, his claim was approved.

Can this strategy work for everyone? If it did, we’d be the first to tell our clients to make the phone call. But you don’t have to go it alone. If your disability claim is being denied, or you are being strung along with a series of delays, call our offices to learn how we can help.
