Aetna Reverses its Decision to Terminate Long Term Disability benefits after Osterhout Berger file its Appeal
Aetna terminated the benefits of our client, an Executive Administrative Assistant, after she had been receiving disability benefits for only eleven months. Our client suffered from significant limitations in the use of her arms and hands as a result of medical conditions to include neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome.
After the client retained us, Attorney Berger obtained updated medical treatment notes and medical opinions from our client’s treating physicians and a detailed vocational report. Attorney Berger also filed an extensive brief arguing why Aetna was unreasonable in terminating benefits and after a review of all of our submissions, Aetna reversed its previous decision and reinstated benefits, resulting in our client receiving almost one year of past due benefits and ongoing benefits.
