I to am another victim of Cigna, I am unable to work due to a progressive form of RA which has been non responsive to treatment with numerous other secondary disease complications. Upon my initial phone conversation the 1st question I was asked was does your Dr. think this will be a short or long term leave? I now realize that is their first determining factor for if we will be approved or denied. My reason for denial is my Dr did not supply enough evidence of disability. I asked them to please call my Dr to ask specifics and with much arguing they agreed and let me know that they are going the extra mile doing so. 24 hrs later I was informed my case was closed due to lack of evidence, I asked if they spoke to my Dr they said no we gave her 24 hrs to respond and they had not heard from her, I found out later my Dr was not in office that day.
I could go on forever with numerous unprofessional practices I have endured but it would take
far to long, but I will say I have contacted an attorney and my hopes are Cigna will not get away with this totally criminal business practice they are subjecting those of us that paid for what we thought of as security if God forbid we found ourselves in a time of need. Please to everyone else that Cigna is criminally victimizing in this way, get a lawyer now, stand up for yourself and all of Cigna's victims and fight! Let's all not let them get away with this.
Down, but not yet out in MN.
