Termination Of LTD Benefits Was Not Arbitrary, Capricious, Federal Judge Says
LAFAYETTE, La. - A disability insurer's termination of disability benefits based on its finding that the claimant was not disabled from any occupation was not arbitrary and capricious because the insurer considered the opinion of the claimant's treating physician and the insurer based its decision on substantial medical evidence, a Louisiana federal judge said Nov. 5 (Darrell Goodman v. Reliance Standard Life Insurance Co., No. 18-623, W.D. La., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 193123).
