National Disability Insurance Attorney for Denied Claims
CIGNA is one of the largest national disability insurance providers in America, principally providing group disability benefits through employer’s ERISA plans. CIGNA has faced many lawsuits in recent years because of denying legitimate long-term disability claims, often based on bad faith practices. Legal records indicate that the number of claims CIGNA has denied over the past several years has increased significantly.
When policyholders or claimants appeal the denied claim, CIGNA often explains that the decision was made because of poor documentation of the disability or missing a filing deadline, or because the disability was not covered by the policy. These may be an indication of bad faith insurance practices in your state.
