The Doctor’s Disability Insurance Appeals Handbook
Get Practical Advice From Lawyers Who Focus on Physicians’ Disability Appeals
There is a lot at stake when you are a physician who is unable to work due to a severe injury, illness, or chronic condition. After all, the average general surgeon made $373,000 in 2020 and the average orthopedist earned $511,000. (And a significant number of doctors make much more.)
Losing that much income can put everything you have worked so hard for at risk. That is why you purchased disability insurance, right?
We know how frustrating and stress-inducing it is to get a letter from the insurance company denying your disability insurance claim. The lawyers at Bryant Legal Group have been helping doctors get the short-term and long-term disability benefits they deserve for decades. We understand the unique challenges of your individual or employer-sponsored disability policies.
That is why we created The Doctor’s Disability Insurance Appeal Handbook.
Disability Appeals, Simplified
You deserve honest, real-world advice, and our disability insurance lawyers have carefully outlined the essentials in our Physician Handbook. We will help you understand your policy, identify possible red flags and complications, and educate you about your legal options.
Our guide explores a variety of topics, including:
- Three sections of your policy you cannot ignore
- Five steps you will need to take when appealing a short-term or long-term disability insurance denial
- How to determine whether you have a true “own occupation,” “own specialty,” or “any occupation” policy
- Common mistakes that physicians make during disability appeals—and how to avoid them
We will decode ERISA and other disability insurance laws, highlight common filing deadlines, and explore the many types of disability policies that you might have.
