The history behind Provident Life consists of mergers and acquisitions; Provident Life is actually a predecessor company of Unum, the world’s largest disability insurance company.
Founded in 1887, Provident Life and Accident Insurance Company began as a provider of railroad insurance. They progressed to selling long term disability policies in 1939.
In 1997, Provident Life acquired the Paul Revere Life Insurance Company. Two years later, Provident Life merged with Unum to form UnumProvident Corporation. Finally, in 2007, UnumProvident Corporation changed its name to Unum Group.
Dealing with Provident Life and Accident Disability Claims Denial
In the years prior to the merging of these companies and the corporate name changes, Provident Life and Accident sold thousands of long term disability insurance policies. Many old Paul Revere policies, or Provident/Paul Revere policies, still exist as well.
Currently when our firm represents disability claim disputes against Provident/Paul Revere, or Provident Life and Accident, our attorneys actually handle the denial as a claim against Unum.
Provident Life’s History for Unfair Claims Denial
In 2004, a full investigation by the insurance regulators of all fifty states determined that bad faith denial of legitimate disability benefit claims were deliberately performed by Unum Provident. These bad faith practices stem from the mid-1990s. Thousands of long term policies were denied due to bad faith insurance practices, contract misinterpretation, cutting corners, unfair medical evaluations and many more unjust review and settlement tactics.
