Hartford's Use of Paper Reviewing Doctors Found Unreasonable

One of the biggest challenges for ERISA claimants is that there claim can be denied or terminated based largely upon an opinion which is specifically paid for by an insurance company. Many of the largest LTD insurance companies regularly rely upon a limited number of doctors, who perform "paper reviews", never personally examining a patient, before formulating an opinion that they are not disabled.

DISABILITY- When it happens to you

More than 30 million Americans between the ages of 21 and 64 are disabled, and more than 25 million Americans are not able to work because of a disability. As the American population continues to age, these numbers are only going to increase. Most of these people were healthy, active and functioning until they experienced serious illnesses like cancer, heart attack, diabetes or arthritis. Accidents take their toll also, and most disabling accidents are not work related.
