Does a disability insurance company need to consider the side effects of my medications?
Author: Attorney Rachel Alters
Disability insurance companies are notorious for ignoring the cognitive side effects that most disability claimants experience from their medications. Disability companies are aware of the side effects of narcotics; yet they often fail to consider how working under the influence of these prescribed drugs limits a person’s ability to work. Disability benefit companies are required by law to consider the side effects of each and every medication taken by a claimant. Watch our video in which Attorneys Rachel Alters and Gregory Dell discuss an Aetna long term disability denial that was reversed due to Aetna’s failure to reasonable evaluate the pain medications taken by a woman with chronic back pain. Contact any of our disability insurance attorneys to discuss your claim.
