Did Great West Life Deny Your Disability Insurance Claim Because You Did Not Complete Its Rehabilitation Program?

Does this scenario look familiar?  You are unable to work due to a disability such as stress, anxiety, depression, headaches or pain.  You apply to Great West Life for disability insurance benefits.  You send in your application and a physician statement from your family doctor.  Great West Life then tells you to go to a rehab program where you are pressured to return to work.  You are fed up with the pressure from both your case manager at Great West and the rehab counsellor and simply cannot continue.  You get a call or letter from Great West Life denying your disability claim on the basis that you didn’t complete the program.

Great West Life  may invite you to participate in their internal appeal process and will give you a deadline to do this.  You are frustrated and tired of dealing with them.  You are having a hard enough time dealing with your pain and stress.  WE WILL HELP YOU.

We do not recommend that you delay by participating in Great West Life’s internal appeal process.  Think about it.  Do they really expect you to believe that one claims examiner is going to overrule their colleague?

We will help you by advancing your claim quickly and forcefully. We will prepare a medical brief with opinions that address the disability test set out in Great West Life’s  insurance policy.  We will start your law suit quickly and move to resolve your case early through a mediation process.
