Claims Against LINA/CIGNA
CIGNA Corporation is the current overarching name of a global company based in Philadelphia with roots extending back to the formation of the Insurance Company of North America (INA) in 1792. The company’s subsidiaries, including LINA, are numerous as a result of many mergers and other organizational actions, and it reported 2010 revenues of more than $21 billion.
Taking Action Against Wrongful Claim Denials And Delays
CIGNA describes itself as a “global health service organization,” and it offers many insurance products through group plans for employers, associations, and organizations. LINA, specifically, has faced widespread inquiry and litigation in California related to its denials of disability claims and other claim handling practices including:
- Rejecting disability claims without proper review of medical evidence — and sometimes without any review at all
- Imposing excessive and unreasonable delays in making claim decisions and paying benefits, often while making unreasonable demands for irrelevant medical and personal information
- Unfairly and arbitrarily terminating long-term disability (LTD) and short-term disability (STD) benefits for policyholders coping with a vast range of disabling conditions
Attorneys at Pillsbury & Coleman, LLP, can assess your legal options and offer sound guidance if you have encountered a wrongful claim denial or other problems with a CIGNA or LINA policy, or other disability insurance companies. We help our clients pursue their rightful benefits through ERISA appeals and litigation necessary for most group policies, and we take decisive legal action for holders of individually obtained policies as well.
