Episode Notes

  • Week That Was – Clients should be very careful of the advice they’re being given in regards to their disability claims and the source of the information.
  • My sister’s benefits were cut off as the insurer says there isn’t enough medical information to support the claim and she fears she will be terminated from her employer. What are her options?
  • When you discuss the “any occupation” period, you often discuss how the test is harder than in the “own occupation” period.  How much harder is the test, and how likely is someone to be cut off when the test changes?
  • Can I wait until after I’ve had treatment and things start to improve if I want to file a disability claim?
  • When you start a legal claim for a client, what is their experience like?  How close is it to what we see in television or the movies?
  • If I can’t continue my recommended treatments, will my benefits be cut off?
  • You talk a lot about the “Any Occupation” period – does that mean that if you can do ANY OCCUPATION that you don’t qualify for benefits anymore?
  • What is important for family doctor’s to know when helping their patients who are currently long-term disability?
