In September 2016, the American Conference Institute (ACI), one of the leading organizations on educating the insurance industry, conducted its 19th National Advanced Forum on Litigating Disability Insurance Claims. Alicia Paulino-Grisham was again invited to participate as a Speaker.
Ms. Paulino-Grisham’s presentation was titled “Total v. Partial Disability Insurance Claims.” This topic addressed the intersection between Total and Partial Disability provisions contain within disability insurance policies, the different approaches taken by courts in applying these provisions, the types of evidence utilized by claimants and insurance companies to support their positions, evaluated current trends in the law, and involved a thorough and candid discussion of the claim review process. It was an interactive presentation, with participation from the attendees, which consisted of attorneys representing claimants and those representing insurance companies.
As always, Ms. Paulino-Grisham was honored to be invited to speak at ACI and enjoyed the presentations and exchange of ideas with various colleagues in the disability insurance industry. We look forward to many more years of participating with ACI.
