|District Court Says 'Aetna's Goal Was to Deny the Plaintiff's Claim'|
DeBofsky & Associates, PC
Nov. 16, 2015
"The court was disturbed by Aetna's insistence on 'objective medical evidence' in the absence of a policy requirement mandating such evidence. Moreover, the court found that the nature of [the employee's] impairment made it impossible for him to produce the type of evidence that Aetna demanded. The court was also dubious about the validity of Aetna's vocational assessment and also questioned its medical consultants' findings.... [The court] pointed out that Aetna did not have a license to ignore reliable evidence, yet it appeared to the court that Aetna did just that." [Charles v. UPS Long Term Disability Plan, No. 12-06223 (E.D. Pa. Oct. 29, 2015)]
