Medical Conditions

Was Your Long Term Disability for Drug Addiction Denied?

Drug and alcohol addiction is a widespread and debilitating medical condition. Drug addiction can affect your ability to work and lead to a long term disability. You may suffer health problems, cognitive function impairment, and other issues that make it impossible to maintain gainful employment as you struggle with substance abuse.

In some cases, your drug addiction may result from another disabling condition. For example, someone with a back injury may have been prescribed opiates. Their injury may have resolved with treatment, but now that it’s over, they’re left with a crippling lifelong condition.

Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t always agree with how debilitating it is. They may even attempt to exclude coverage, claiming that addiction itself is not an illness. But if an addiction leads to a significant disability—or was caused by one—it may be covered.

Why was your long term disability for drug addiction denied?

When your benefits for long term disability for drug addiction are denied, you may feel you have few options. The insurance company may claim that your condition doesn’t keep you from working or even, despite all empirical evidence, that it’s curable. When that happens, you need the help of an experienced legal team like Share Lawyers.

If you’re facing a similar situation, your best option is to consult with an experienced disability attorney who can explain to you why your claim for long term disability for drug addiction was denied. They will understand coverage nuances and help you get the benefits you’re entitled to.
