ERISA Gap Policy – Neurological Disorder
A Ft. Myers, Florida chemist had a severe neurological disorder. The company in which she worked had her examined by in-house doctors under a group ERISA policy. The company said she couldn’t work anymore. The firm created a day-in-the life of the chemist to show the insurance company that this was an actual person, not just another claim. He included a video of her living day-to-day, taking her medications, and the twitching effects that came with her neurological disorder. He won a large settlement.
