Can Disability Insurance Law Group Handle Private and Employer-Supplied Insurance Claims?
Disability insurance provides financial protection for radiologists nationwide should they become unable to work due to a disability or injury, whether they have a private or employer-supplied policy, often governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
Private disability insurance and ERISA-governed disability insurance are two distinct types of disability insurance with significant differences in coverage, regulation, and features.
- Private Disability Insurance
Private disability insurance is purchased by individuals directly from insurance companies or through insurance agents. Policyholders pay the premiums themselves, and the policy is owned and controlled by the individual. It is typically used to supplement any employer-provided disability coverage.
These policies are regulated at the state level. State insurance departments oversee and regulate these policies to ensure compliance with state laws, including claims processing, policy terms, and benefit payments.
The definition of disability can vary widely among private insurance policies. Some policies may use an “own occupation” definition, which considers the insured disabled if they cannot perform the duties of their specific occupation. Others may use an “any occupation” definition, requiring the insured to be unable to work in any occupation for which they are reasonably suited.
When a disability claim is denied under a private insurance policy, the appeals process typically involves communication and negotiation between the policyholder and the insurance company. Policyholders have the right to take legal action against the insurance company if their claim is unfairly denied, and the legal process is subject to state laws.
- ERISA-Governed Disability Insurance
An employer provides ERISA disability insurance as part of the employee benefits package. The premiums are often paid by the employer or through employer and employee contributions.
The federal government sets specific rules and requirements for ERISA employee benefit plans, including disability insurance provided by employers.
Many ERISA-governed plans use an “any occupation” definition of disability, meaning the policyholder must be unable to work in any occupation for which they are reasonably qualified. However, the specific definition can vary depending on the plan’s terms.
ERISA-governed plans have a more structured appeals process. If a disability claim is denied, the policyholder must go through the plan’s internal appeals process, including submitting additional information and documentation. If the internal appeals process is exhausted, the policyholder may have the option to take the case to federal court for judicial review.
No matter which type of policy you have or who the insurer may be, our attorneys work tirelessly to ensure that radiologists receive the maximum benefits to which they are entitled under their policy, including both short-term and long-term disability benefits by developing a strategic approach to maximize the likelihood of a successful claim.
