Broadspire and Long-Term Disability Claims
On August 11, 2014, Broadspire announced that it would add short‐term disability, long‐term disability, and Family Medical and State Leave management to its existing global portfolio of products. The new suite of products, collectively known as Integrated Disability and Absence Management Services (IDAM), first became available in the fourth quarter of 2014.
Broadspire announced it will partner with ClaimVantage, a global software firm with a claims management system with specialized capabilities. ClaimVantage has a cloud‐based platform with anywhere access to handle disability and absence management claims.
Understanding Your Options After a Broadspire Disability Benefits Denial
If Broadspire manages your long-term disability insurance policy, ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) regulations likely apply to your case. ERISA sets rigorous rules and timelines for appeals, especially when your disability benefits have been halted or rejected. The window for filing an appeal under these regulations is typically very brief, often capped at 180 days. Some plans may also offer an optional second appeal process. To navigate this complex landscape, it’s advisable to seek counsel from a disability law specialist to clarify your legal rights.
