Conversion Disorder Disability Insurance Claim Denial

In recent years, there has been significant progress in recognizing mental health as a genuine health issue that can impact a person's work. Despite these positive changes, the lingering stigma continues to affect certain conditions more than others unfairly.

Conversion disorder, a psychological condition leading to unexplained neurological symptoms, can leave individuals struggling to receive disability benefits. Insurance companies, often reluctant to pay out, may further sideline those with this disorder.

If you’ve experienced a conversion disorder disability insurance claim denial, it might seem like you're in a tough spot. Don't worry, Share Lawyers is here to help you secure the benefits you rely on when you can't work.

Are You Experiencing a Conversion Disorder Disability Insurance Claim Denial?

Mental health is as essential to an individual’s livelihood as physical well-being. In fact, issues with mental health can lead to physical ailments. Conversion disorder can prevent you from working due to a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Weakness
  • Tremors
  • Paralysis
  • Seizures

However, because these effects of the disorder are not linked to any specific medical or neurological conditions, insurance companies commonly dispute conversion disorder’s propensity for leaving Canadians unable to work. The way insurance companies deny conversion disorder claims is problematic as conversion disorder’s symptoms are known to be quite severe, even debilitating for some individuals.

Ways Conversion Disorder Can Impact Your Ability to Work
  • Neurological Symptoms
Symptoms such as paralysis, tremors, physical weakness, and seizures can hinder both physical and cognitive functions, making it challenging to perform duties at work.
  • Severity of Symptoms
Symptoms of conversion disorder can vary, with more intense symptoms creating greater workplace challenges.
  • Unpredictable Nature
The unpredictable appearance of symptoms can complicate the ability to schedule and perform routine work tasks.
  • Stigma
The stigma surrounding mental health conditions may contribute to misunderstandings and judgment in the workplace.
  • Workplace Challenges
Lack of understanding from colleagues or employers may create additional stress for individuals with conversion disorder.

If you experience a conversion disorder disability insurance claim denial, it's crucial to connect with someone who can validate the legitimacy of your condition. Share Lawyers can provide the necessary evidence to show that your disability is real and that it genuinely hinders your ability to work. We want to help you secure the insurance benefits you need to pay for necessities.

Why Are Psychological Disability Claims Often Denied?

Disability law can be complex, and navigating its landscape can be daunting. That’s why it’s understandable to be confused when your disability insurance claim has been denied. Insurance companies use this to their advantage to prevent paying out benefits to their clients because they expect most will take no for an answer.

Typically, insurance companies will use three justifications or methods to deny a disability insurance claim.

  • Insufficient Medical Evidence: Benefits are frequently refused in conversion disorder claims because there is inadequate paperwork or medical evidence. This issue is compounded by the fact that the condition lacks physical or neurological causes.

  • Does Not Meet the Definition of Disability: Your disability may not match the insurance company's definition of a disability if your claim for benefits has been denied.

  • Surveillance: Insurance companies regularly monitor social media pages and employ private investigators to keep tabs on their clients' lives in an attempt to uncover any evidence that can bolster their claim that they are still fit to work. In addition to being intrusive, this delivers data selectively that could be misconstrued to minimize benefits.

When you experience a conversion disorder disability insurance claim denial, you are the victim of injustice; none of these things are fair to you. Your insurance company should not supersede the medical judgment of your physician to redefine what qualifies as a disability.
