Why Disability Claims Get Denied

Why Disability Claims Get Denied

It’s a scenario far too many face: after contributing tirelessly to your work and trusting in its provided disability plan, the moment you lean on it, the system seems to fail you. When a disability claim is denied, it doesn’t just reject financial support, it can feel like a dismissal of your struggles and a profound breach of trust. Nainesh Kotak, an expert in navigating the complex waters of disability claims, highlights the common pitfalls in these processes and offers a beacon of hope for those feeling lost in their fight for justice.

### **Common Grounds for Denial**

#### 1. **Insufficient Medical Evidence**
Perhaps one of the most cited reasons for a denial is the supposed lack of medical evidence. It’s crucial, yet many disability insurers find ways to deem this evidence as inadequate, every day sentencing bona fide claims to the reject pile.

#### 2. **Lack of Appropriate Treatment**
Many policies demand ongoing and appropriate treatment, failing to consider that the very nature of some disabilities might inhibit seeking or continuing this treatment. This criterion often becomes a catch-22 for many applicants.

#### 3. **Definitions of Disability**
The definitions of disability are often stringent, with goalposts seemingly moved to serve the interests of the insurer rather than the insured. This misalignment between expectation and policy can unravel the trust and security you placed in your disability plan.

#### 4. **Surveillance**
An invasion of privacy or a necessary evil? Many insurers employ private investigators to find any reason to nullify your claim, challenging your credibility based on your best or most active days, without accounting for the nature of many disabilities which can fluctuate in severity.

### **Turning the Tide in Your Favour**
Feeling frustrated and corner-method post-denial is understandable, but remember, this is not the end of the road. There are experienced professionals who dedicate their careers to fighting for the rights of individuals denied their rightful benefits.

#### **Demand Transparency**
Upon denial, request a comprehensive explanation. Understanding the specific reasons behind your insurer’s decision is your first step towards formulating an appeal. This clarity can also highlight areas where you might fortify your claim, such as gathering more detailed medical documents or records of treatment.

#### **Seek Professional Help**
Facing a mammoth like an insurance company can be daunting and at times, seem futile. However, specialists in disability claim law hold the David’s sling to your Goliath. These experts breathe life back into your claim, helping navigate appeals, and often, they can transform deny into apply.

#### **Know Your Rights, Explore Your Options**
Whether consultation means meeting in an office, via Skype, or even WhatsApp, technological advancements mean assistance is never too far away. Most reputable law practices don’t charge until your case is resolved — a testament to their confidence in understanding and overcoming the common grounds for claims denial.
