ANOTHER SURVEY - THIS TIME, THE BAD NEWS

At Frankel & Newfield, we keep an eye on the business side of the insurance business.

It reveals the sad state of affairs for the disability insurance sector.

SELF-SERVING SURVEY SAYS...... WOULD YOU BELIEVE A SURVEY FROM THE INSURANCE COMPANY THAT BROUGHT YOU MET LIFE v. GLENN?

The fact that a vice president of Group Disability Products is quoted in a press release stating that he "finds it disturbing that the vast majority of working Americans have not adequately protected one of their most important assets - the ability to earn an income" is exactly what anyone would expect from one of the largest marketers and underwriters of Long Term Disability Insurance.

Hartford's Conduct Found Arbitrary and Capricious

A Federal Court in Ohio has determined that Hartford's reliance upon the opinion of a non-examining, paper reviewing physician, was not sufficient to support a termination of disability benefits to an insured. Hartford relied upon the opinion of a physician provided by MES Solutions, an entity seen regularly as providing insurer favorable doctors to write reports justifying a termination of disability benefits.
