ERISA Long Term Disability Insurance Denial in Texas

No matter your reason for applying for long term disability insurance benefits, you should be able to receive these valuable benefits if you paid the premiums for this insurance.

Why Are Long Term Disability Claims Denied?

Denials of ERISA long term disability insurance claims occur in Texas for a variety of reasons. Knowing the two most common reasons for such a denial can be helpful in preparing a strong appeal or fighting the denial in court.

Lack of Medical Evidence

Long term disability insurance claims are most likely to be denied due to lack of medical evidence. In an active claims process, the claimant must provide medical records that prove they have an inability to work.

However, most insurance companies have their own medical professionals—who usually have a vested financial interest in claim denials—to review the medical records of claimants. Additionally, many insurance companies may deny a claim with accurate and complete medical evidence in the hopes that the claimant will not pursue any further action.

Claimants planning to appeal their denied claim should be sure that all relevant medical evidence and documentation is included in their file and is completely accurate. Once an appeal is denied, no further information can be added to the file before taking the case to court.

Improper Filing

The ERISA claims process—not to mention individual insurance company requirements—can make the claims process complex and difficult to understand. Sometimes insurance companies take advantage of this fact to deny more claims. Even a small mistake can disqualify a claimant from receiving the ERISA long term disability benefits they are entitled to, making assistance from an attorney specializing in ERISA cases all the more important.

Talking to a Texas ERISA Attorney

If your ERISA long term disability insurance claim was denied, you have the right under the Act’s regulations to appeal your claim and, if the appeal is denied, to file a lawsuit. A skilled Texas ERISA lawyer can review the common reasons for ERISA long term disability insurance denial in Texas with you to help your case going forward.

Despite the high number of denials, it is possible to fight for and win the right to access the benefits you paid for. Contact a knowledgeable attorney today to learn more about your options after an ERISA claim denial.
