For anyone filing Aetna disability claims, a denial of claim letter is not the response you count on.
Aetna disability claim denials are well known to our attorneys, but they often come as a surprise to the people who are the victims. Aetna is one of the leading health insurance companies in the United States and the world. Founded in 1850, today Aetna is a Fortune 100 company, with 2010 revenues of $34 billion.
At Marc Whitehead & Associates, we provide nationwide representation for policyholders whose Aetna disability insurance claims were wrongfully denied, delayed or terminated.
Aetna products run the gamut of health and insurance plans, including group disability insurance policies. Aetna sells short term and long term disability insurance coverage through employer provided plans. These plans provide monetary benefits to workers who experience illness or injury that leaves them unable to work. While the benefits do not cover 100% of the worker’s wages, they do provide a critical source of income to beneficiaries.
Yet every year, a disturbing number of disability insurance claims are unfairly denied by Aetna. Our attorneys have helped thousands of individuals fight against deceptive practices by all the “Top Deniers” of disability benefits, including Aetna.
If your claim has been denied, do not give up. You have recourse. Ask a question to a lawyer about your Aetna disability claims denial. Our phones are open 24 hours a day to take your call.
Aetna Insurance Claims Fall under ERISA Law
Almost all long term disability claims filed under an employer’s group plan are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, commonly know as ERISA. These are federal regulations that actually make it easy for insurance companies to reject disability claims without fear of penalty.
That is why, even with legitimate Aetna disability claims, denial of the claim is often Aetna’s response to policyholders. As the insured, it is critical that you are represented by a long term disability insurance lawyer with deep experience in ERISA insurance law.
Don’t Let an Aetna Disability Claims Denial Intimidate You
An Aetna disability claim denial is not the final word on your benefits, but the next steps you take are critical to the eventual success of your claim. Marc Whitehead & Associates can intervene on your behalf and ensure that you have the resources and evidence to prove your claim. A healthy dose of strong legal representation can force the insurance company to come through with the money they owe you.
Marc Whitehead & Associates can legally represent your dispute with Aetna in the following ways:
- Filing an appeal with Aetna as required by ERISA laws, including extensive documentation to back your claim.
