Does the 2013 Cigna Long Term Disability Regulatory Settlement Agreement Require My Disability Benefit Denial to Be Reconsidered?

If you are a resident of California, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, or Pennsylvania you may be eligible to have a previously denied Cigna long term disability claim re-evaluated. Pursuant to the May 13, 2013 Cigna Regulatory Settlement Agreement, Cigna must reassess long term disability insurance claims that were denied to residents of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, or Pennsylvania between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010. Residents of California that had their Cigna disability claims denied between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2010 may have their claims reassessed.

If you receive a notice from CIGNA, then you must notify them of your intent to have the claim reassessed within 60 DAYS of the date of the letter. Cigna has been fined in excess of $1.6 million dollars as a result of their unreasonable claim handling practices and has allegedly set aside $77 million to pay for claims that will be reassessed. Attorneys Dell & Schaefer is available to provide you with a free consultation via telephone and to advise you as to the best way to collect Cigna disability benefits that may have been wrongfully denied.

  • Peg, if denied we would be more than willing to review your claim and go after Cigna on your behalf.

    This is my third year of dealing with a denial from Cigna. My conditions are life-long and my doctor has
    given his recommendation that I cannot work at a sedentary job due to neck and shoulder blade pain.
    The letter I received from Cigna listed two jobs I could do that are sedentary. Both jobs require more education and I have been diagnosed after testing with a brain injury. I also have an immune deficiency and Addisons. If I am denied can you help me? I have fought them the past two years but it is stressful.
    I have my IMR tomorrow. Any suggestions?
