Disability Insurer Did Not Abuse Discretion In Denying STD Benefits, Panel Says

SAN FRANCISCO - A disability insurer did not abuse its discretion in terminating a claimant's short-term disability benefits because none of the claimant's treating physicians found that the claimant was functionally impaired from performing the duties of his own occupation, the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said Dec. 10 (Daniel Johnson v. Aetna Life Insurance Co., et al., No. 17-55501, 9th Cir., 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 34657).
