How is my treating doctor involved with my disability claim?

Besides treating you for your disability, your doctor will be playing an active role in your disability claim, both during and after your claim is approved.  During the pendency of your claim, your doctor will be documenting and reporting on your disability to your disability insurance carrier.  If your claim is approved, your doctor will have to routinely provide updates to your disability company by completing forms provided by your disability company.  The form takes only a few minutes to complete, but some doctors are known to charge a relatively high fee for completing this form every month.

The Law Firm of J.P. Gonzalez-Sirgo, P.A. represents individuals that have had their valid long term disability benefits denied, delayed or terminated irrespective of whether the policy was purchased individually or issued through an employer group policy.  The firm is available to assist individuals with the initial application process, during the administrative appeals process, handling denials of claims or termination of benefits, litigation in state or federal court, and negotiating a one-time lump sum settlement or buy-out.  Please contact our office to discuss your case in more detail.
