For more than 20 years, lawyer Glenn Kantor has been helping people with chronic illnesses get the insurance benefits they deserve from employer-provided disability and long-term care insurance. Recently, his firm Kantor & Kantor LLP has received an unusual number of calls from people with Parkinson’s disease who can no longer work but have still been denied disability benefits. Even when treating physicians have diagnosed that the patient is too disabled by the disease to meet the demands of his or her job, insurers are insisting that the patient can still be employed at some occupation. In the interview, Kantor explains why these denials are becoming more frequent and what kind of evidence and documentation the policyholder must provide to satisfy insurer demands.
