FRANKEL & NEWFIELD WINS APPEAL FOR HIGH INCOME MET LIFE POLICY OWNER WITH "RED FLAG" CONDITIONS

Our client suffers from Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Claims based on these particular illnesses always send up a red flag to a disability insurance company's claims department. Add to that her position as a high-earning employee at a leading national consulting company with a high monthly benefit and the result is almost always a denied claim. A Met Life nurse reviewed the file and claimed that there was no evidence of impairment or cognitive deficits. We worked closely with our client's treating doctors to prepare a strong appeal, with solid arguments, and we won. She is now on claim.

We are not affiliated with the forum, but we do occasionally participate in the discussions. One common thread that we see is surprise at the callous attitude and uncaring responses of disability insurance companies and their representatives. We have been fighting insurance companies for so long that we don't expect the insurance companies to be kind or respectful to policyholders.
