Examples Of Insurance Bad Faith By Colonial Life
Stories abound about disability benefit denials by Colonial Life:
- One policyholder was told that she should have gone to urgent care when she first started to feel sick, and the insurer refused to pay for work days missed before she saw a physician for a diagnosis.
- Another was denied benefits because Colonial Life claimed it had never received medical records for initial underwriting.
- A third policyholder was told that claims for pre-existing conditions would be honored after five years, but she experienced delays even though her first surgery for the condition was seven years before the claim.
- A policyholder diagnosed with atrial fibrillation was told that because he had high blood pressure when he applied for disability insurance, the insurer would not cover his claim based on atrial fibrillation.
