Edmonton Disability Claims Law page

Is this how your insurance company has treated you?

  • The insurance company seems to be be a big impersonal corporation, interested in its own bottom line profits and in making money to pay their shareholders.
  • They seem to be more concerned about finding reasons not to pay your long term disability claim than in finding reasons to pay your long term disability claim.
  • They say you filed your claim “late” even though you had a good reason why you didn’t file it earlier.
  • The insurance claim adjudicator is rude to you. Then the disability insurance company sends out a “rehabilitation consultant” to visit you at your home.  The rehabilitation consultant seems to do little more than act as a double agent to get covert information for the disability insurance company.  Then the rehabilitation consultant tears pages from the phone book and says, “Here, go apply for a job.”
  • If you don’t know computers the insurance company may send you to a weekend computer course and then say you are qualified for a sit down or sedentary job when you have no computer skills.
  • Adjudicators sometimes say, “Oh, you can still do something. You’re not totally disabled”, when that is not the legal test of disability that applies to your insurance policy.
  • They  switch claims representatives on you until you don’t know who you are dealing with.  You can’t get a straight answer, except for saying, “The medical evidence is insufficient.”  You ask what more they want, and you can’t get a clear answer.
  • They may ask for medical documents within 30 days, when they know you  can’t get your doctor to fill in the medical forms that quickly.
  • Insurance companies may complain that you haven’t see a specialist, even if you are on the waiting list to see one.  And that your doctor doesn’t have a diagnosis, even though you are following all medical advice.
  • They say you’re not cooperating with your treatment even though you are doing all you reasonably can.
  • They seem to give you unreasonable time frames, yet take a long time in making their decisions.  They expect you to pay for any medical documentation.  If they order a medical report from your doctor, they only pay him the bare minimum to scribble out a form as to why you are disabled.
  • They ask for medical reports where your doctor says you are disabled, yet once they get the medical reports they don’t believe your doctors.
  • They will complain about lack of objective medical evidence when you don’t even know what that means.
  • They will send you to “their” doctor, and while you think that doctor has been hired to help you, he or she is really looking for evidence as to why you are not disabled and don’t qualify for benefits.
  • They will scrutinize every sentence of every piece of medical documentation concerning your medical condition and take it out of context.
  • Then they “close your claim” giving you only 30 or 90 days to appeal, misleading you into thinking that if you missed that 90 day period, you are out of time and have no further rights.

Now not all insurance companies act this way. And not all the time. But some do!
