I was diagnosed with arthritis in my early 20s. I am now 38. I started a new job ten months ago. Recently my arthritis pain became so severe that I could not work, so I applied for disability insurance through my new group plan. They denied my claim because my arthritis is a pre-existing condition. Can they do this?
My insurance company has dismissed my claim for long-term disability benefits because they believe that my arthritis is manageable. How can I prove to them that the symptoms prevent me from doing my job?
