Benefits Properly Denied Based On Disability Claimant's Pre-Existing Condition

DENVER - A disability insurer properly denied long-term disability (LTD) benefits based on the plan's pre-existing condition provision because the claimant was diagnosed with a condition that caused his loss of sight three months before filing a claim for disability benefits, the 10th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said Sept. 26 (Michael Green v. Life Insurance Company of North America, No. 17-1383, 10th Cir., 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 27439).
