Why is a medical diagnosis not enough to convince an insurer that disability benefits are due?
A medical diagnosis alone is not sufficient because the severity of the symptoms must also be considered disabling. For instance, if you have been diagnosed with migraine headaches, then it is important to indicate the frequency of the headaches as well as how they prevent you from performing your job.
