Kidney Failure Long Term Disability
Severe chronic kidney failure or chronic renal failure should be qualified under long term disability (LTD) benefits if your resulting limitations are severe. If your claim is denied, the dedicated complex litigation attorneys at The Michael Brady Lynch Firm can help.
Chronic Kidney Disease
When a kidney doesn’t function properly, chronic kidney disease can occur. People need to have ongoing peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis and some people need a kidney transplant. An insurance company will allow benefits after a transplant. However, after six to twelve months, the insurance company will try to stop your benefits.
Other kidney diseases like Nephrotic Syndrome can be debilitating. Excess protein in the urine, swelling and high cholesterol are present. Treatment for nephrotic syndrome includes treating the underlying condition that’s causing it and taking medications. Nephrotic syndrome can increase the risk of infections and blood clots. Medication is normally needed.
Proving Long Term Disability
After a claim denial for a kidney failure disease, it is important to realize the factors an insurance company uses to judge your claim. The main factor is medical history. This includes all hospitalizations, doctor treatment notes, along with any laboratory findings of kidney failure.
Make sure if you are on dialysis, you show renal function before treatment and the need for ongoing dialysis. Plus, showing records of renal biopsies will bolster a claim. Make sure to contact the doctor who performed it and have a note indicating the procedure along with a description of the results.
