Cigna Disability Claim Denials
Insurance companies want to create wealth for their executives and investors. This wealth may be generated at the expense of policyholders through unfair claim denials.
Cigna acts in bad faith when they deny long-term disability benefits in a blatant attempt to boost profits.
Insurance companies hold a legal duty to their policyholders to act in good faith and fair dealing.
If your insurance company has failed to uphold this responsibility, you may be able to sue on a bad faith claim.
Unfair long-term disability insurance claim denial is one way that Cigna may have failed to uphold its duty as an insurer.

Cigna Disability Denial Reasons
If your Cigna claim was denied, Cigna may have cited one or more of the following reasons — which may or may not be accurate:
- You failed to disclose a pre-existing health condition
- Your medical examinations were insufficient or inadequate
- There were problems with your paperwork or documentation
- Your medical condition is not a “covered” disability
- Your procedure was elective, not medically necessary
While some CEOs watch their salaries increase, the people they are supposed to protect watch their insurance rates and their long-term disability claim denials climb as well.
Long-Term Disability Denial Consequences
A Cigna disability insurance denial could result in:
- Immediate loss of your regular income
- Loss or foreclosure of your home
- Loss of your savings
- Denial of your health care
This is all the more reason for you to not take a wrongful denial lying down.
