Understanding Claim Denials of Disability Insurance

mwe partnership disability insurance

Various health conditions and longstanding health problems make disability insurance a necessity.

Despite the industry you work in – the demand for insurance has increased as wages shrink and job security wavers. So, take a minute to think about the disposition of your employees because they may need disability benefits more urgently than you know. Even so, claim denials for disability insurance can occur for several reasons. Let’s learn why.

Different Medical Conditions

Various health conditions and longstanding health problems make disability insurance a necessity. Unfortunately, your medical conditions can lead to your being denied proper insurance coverage. For instance, blood disorders, hepatitis, cancer, multiple sclerosis, Renal disorders, and Parkinson’s may significantly decrease your quality of life. Sadly, they are often considered as “pre-existing conditions.”

Upcoming Surgeries or Other Procedures

All surgeries, even minor ones, hold a small amount of risk. In some cases, this danger may be negligible. However, your disability insurance carrier may be more hesitant to backstop you for more complex and invasive procedures, especially when anesthesia is involved.

Your Weight

Even though a person’s physical appearance does not always indicate their health, their weight could stand out. This is because insurers will measure your weight and height to help determine the premium size you must pay. In addition, obesity can cause denial, and many secondary risks like back problems or heart disease can occur. By contrast, being underweight can also be problematic because it could indicate eating disorders such as anorexia.

Risky Careers

Disability insurance is hard to obtain. In many cases, it can be frustrating because insurance carriers do all they can to reduce liabilities regarding the clients they serve. Underwriters will also analyze how risky your job is during evaluation. For example, construction workers, miners, and first responders are prone to much more danger than white-collar workers. The number of benefits that the insurance carrier has to pay could be the deciding factor for the services you deserve.
