Arlington ERISA Denial Lawyer   

Assisting Individuals with Appealing an ERISA Denial in Arlington

The majority of disability plans which are sponsored by an employer are covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, otherwise known as ERISA, which is a federal statute. The rules under this statute are extremely favorable to insurance companies. As a result, your insurance company can be very ambiguous when it comes to denying a claim for long term disability benefits under your ERISA plan.

There are a number of different reasons why an ERISA disability claim might be denied. If your claim has been denied, there are several legal actions that you might be eligible to take, including filing an appeal. If your claim has been denied, Attorney J. Price McNamara of the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara can help you explore your legal options. Contact us online today for more information about how we could assist you.

Reasons Why ERISA Claims are Denied in Arlington

It may surprise many people to know that there are a variety of different reasons why an ERISA disability claim might be denied. Some of the most common reasons for long-term disability denials in Arlington include the following:

  • Specific exclusions which are provided in the language of the policy
  • Insufficient medical evidence which supports the need for long-term disability benefits available under the policy
  • The fact that an individual might be employable in a different occupation
  • Inaccurate or incomplete information provided by the applicant on the claim form
  • Missed filing deadlines
  • Contradictory evidence which the insurance company is able to obtain from a private investigator or from a social media account which shows that the applicant is not, in fact, disabled
  • Pre-existing illnesses or medical conditions which pre-date the onset of the claimed disability 
  • Treatment that is deemed inappropriate or which is not medically authorized
  • The existence of certain subjective symptoms which are not supported by the medical evidence in the claim

Our number-one goal is getting you and your family back to financial security as soon as possible.

New Rules for ERISA Disability Denials

For ERISA disability claims which are filed either on or following January 1, 2018, insurance companies are required to provide a very detailed explanation as to why they are denying a claim. The insurance company may not simply state that the application did not meet their criteria. Instead, the insurance company must explain exactly why the claim has been denied or why they disagree with the medical providers who have determined that you are suffering from a long-term illness or injury. The insurance company must also delineate the specific procedures and internal rules which serve as the basis for their decision. Moreover, if you request specific documentation relating to the insurance company’s denial decision, you must be provided with that documentation.
