Disability Insurer Ordered To Produce Information Related To Reviewing Physicians
NEW YORK - A disability insurer must produce the salaries paid to its reviewing physicians in addition to the curriculum vitae for each reviewing physician because the information is relevant to the determination of whether the insurer's denial of a long-term disability claim was reasonable, a New York federal magistrate judge said Nov. 6 (Michele Weinberg v. Unum Life Insurance Company of America, No. 17-8976, S.D. N.Y., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 189792).
