CIGNA

Attorneys for CIGNA Disability Claims

Cigna is an American worldwide health insurance company that offers heath, dental, supplemental insurance, and Medicare to families, businesses, and individuals. According to their fact sheet online, they make $35 billion dollars in revenues, and their assets reach $55.9 billion dollars.

With those incredibly large dollar amounts, you might never suspect the instance of Cigna not paying claims, but it’s an all too harsh reality that it happens quite often. A number of disgruntled customers from all over the United States can be found in online forums telling horror stories of not receiving payment for months – even years after their Cigna short and long term disability claims were denied.

Cigna Disability Claims

From a statistical standpoint, Cigna denies about 33% of all claims that are received. This is because they’re a multibillion dollar industry, and their bottom line often seems to be more important than the individuals utilizing Cigna disability insurance. In fact, may claimants aren’t even examined by a licensed physician before their Cigna claim status is ruled denied.

In 2007, Cigna even denied a teenage girl from California a liver transplant claiming the procedure was too experimental – though the liver was ready for transplant and she had an estimated 65% chance of living for at least six months. After a lot of public backlash, Cigna reversed its decision, but it was too late. The young girl passed away while waiting for the transplant to take place. This is a clear example of the way Cigna chooses to operate its business in a corporate, cold, and impersonal fashion.
