Ask A Disability Lawyer

My friends and family have told me that insurance companies do not pay long-term disability claims to people suffering from fibromyalgia. I recently applied and haven’t heard anything yet. What can I expect?

Disability Benefits - Question 123
Insurance companies tend to be very skeptical about fibromyalgia claims. They believe that there is insufficient medical evidence to prove the condition, despite its recognition in legal and medical circles. Clinical tests and protocols can establish the diagnosis, so it’s important for you to provide as much medical information as possible. Ask your family doctor to send you to a specialist, such as a rheumatologist or physiatrist to confirm the diagnosis.
