How Do I File an Appeal for a Denied Long-Term Disability Claim?

On Behalf of Disability Insurance Law Group | | Denied Long Term Care Claims

At Disability Insurance Law Group, our long-term disability insurance claims attorneys represent policyholders nationwide whose claims have been denied.

We understand the devastating impact a denial letter can have on you and your family’s physical, emotional, and financial well-being. Without the income provided by long-term disability benefits, you may struggle to cover basic living expenses like mortgage or rent payments, utilities, groceries, and medical expenses.

This can lead to mounting debt, foreclosure or eviction, and other financial difficulties that are difficult to bounce back from, especially while learning to live with a disabling condition.

Whether you contact us upon receiving your denial letter or if you have attempted to appeal the decision on your own already, our skilled long-term disability insurance claims attorneys can provide you with expert advice on the strength of your case, potential legal arguments, and the most effective strategies for appealing the denial.

Can I File a Denied Long-Term Disability Insurance Claim Appeal Without an Attorney?

While it is possible to file a denied long-term disability insurance claim appeal without a lawyer, your approach must be thorough and meticulous.

To maximize your chances of success, take the time to understand your rights and:

  • Read the denial letter provided by your insurance company carefully. This letter should outline the reasons for the denial and any specific requirements or deadlines for filing an appeal.
  • Familiarize yourself with your long-term disability insurance policy. Pay attention to the definitions, coverage limitations, and any appeals-related clauses.
  • Collect all relevant medical records, test results, doctor’s notes, and other evidence supporting your disability claim. Ensure your documentation demonstrates the severity of your condition and how it prevents you from working.
  • Write a formal appeal letter addressing the reasons for the denial and providing additional evidence to support your claim. Be concise, clear, and organized in your presentation of facts. Include references to specific policy provisions and medical evidence, where applicable.
  • Send your appeal letter along with all supporting documentation to the address provided by your insurance company. Consider sending your appeal via certified mail with a return receipt requested to ensure it is received. Make sure to keep copies of everything you send for your records.

After submitting your appeal, follow up with the insurance company to confirm receipt and inquire about the status of your claim. Remember that each insurance company may have slightly different procedures and requirements for appeals, so it is essential to carefully review the information provided by your specific insurer and consider seeking professional assistance from an attorney if needed.
