Disability Insurer's Denial Of Benefits Was Not Abuse Of Discretion, Judge Says

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - A disability insurer did not abuse its discretion in denying a long-term disability (LTD) benefits claim because the insurer considered all of the medical evidence and consulted with two physicians before denying the claim, a West Virginia federal judge said March 27 (Genka Popov v. University Physicians& Surgeons Inc. Long Term Disability Plan, et al., No. 18-296, S.D. W.Va., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 51685).
