Prepare to battle for coverage of eating disorder treatment

Without a doubt, you have had some frightening moments in the recent past. Perhaps you have sat in an emergency room on more than one occasion or called for an ambulance for your unresponsive loved one. Certainly, you had more than one argument with your child, an argument that ended in you tearfully pleading for him or her to just eat something.

Prudential Denies Disability Benefits based on Severance Agreement

The case Thomas v. The Prudential Insurance Company of America, 2018 WL 211 118020, US Dist. Ct. E.D. Pennsylvania, is a reminder of how important it is to understand the implication and consequences of all terms in a severance agreement. When drafting a severance agreement to be signed by a departing employee, employers include broad language designed to protect them as well as their agents, affiliates, fiduciaries, etc. from any future claims or liabilities, whether known or unknown. The result is that by signing the agreement and taking the severance payment, an employee may forever waive their right to legitimate claims or benefits which arose prior to their termination date.
