Cigna/Sedgwick STD Complaint - Cigna/Sedgwick, Short Term Disability administered, avoiding paying however they can
I have also encountered the problem with Cigna/Sedgwick plan admin. They seem to avoid paying any way they can and have unreasonable requirements. How can my doc give a back to wortk date when there are no standard treatments for my foraminal stenosis, osteophytosis, muscle spasms? There's no way anyone can know when I might get back to work! They then require confirmation of disability every month! They repeatedly request more info from doctors when everything on their forms has been provided. Now they're telling me that my doctor's info does not meet their requirements for disability. It's ridiculous. My doctors don't even want to bother with the forms anymore or giving them any info.
They also lied about sending or approving a payment delayed from last year on February 5th, payroll told me that they only got it March 6th. I'm planning on reporting to my company their underhanded tactics.
