Cancer Long Term Disability Claim

Long term disability claims could be available to those with cancer. However, many are denied coverage as insurance agents will nitpick the severity of the illness. There isn’t a cure, but there are many treatments available. Even with treatments, cancer can prevent people from performing their job’s duties.

Cancer Stage & LTD Claim

Most cancer’s severity is categorized based on the stage. Stage 1 cancer involves an abnormal growth of cells that is confined to a single part of the body. Stage 1 cancers sometimes can be surgically removed. This makes approvals for LTD claims rare. However, Stage 2 cancers are still growing. Most have only spread to nearby lymph nodes. But, in Stage 3 cancer the disease has spread even more. These claims are easier to not have denied. Then, with Stage 4, the cancer has spread to more parts of the body. This is the most severe form. A knowledgable complex litigation attorney should achieve a success appeal for a Stage 4 LTD claim. 

Cancer LTD Denial

It is important to prove the severity of the cancer in your appeal. The appeal should include all medical evidence relevant to your cancer’s stage. This includes biopsies, bone scans, CT scans, x-rays, MRI, or ultrasounds. Plus, any clinic notes from medical professionals in your case.  Don’t discount statements from friends and family members. They can describe any daily limitations.  All evidence will help your appeal.  But, these appeals are important. That is why it could be in your best interest to hire a knowledgeable complex litigation attorney. The appeal value gets complicated, but your team of experts help to manage deadlines and the entirety of the appeal process.
