Disability Benefits Were Properly Denied Under Plan, 6th Circuit Panel Affirms

CINCINNATI - A disability claimant is not entitled to long-term disability (LTD) benefits because the plan's decision to terminate his benefits was reasonable based on a review of the medical evidence, the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said Jan. 22 in affirming a district court's decision in favor of the plan (Marc Jackson v. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Long Term Disability Program, No. 18-1542, 6th Cir., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 1978).
