Our client, a registered nurse employed by Memorial Health System was paid long term disability benefits for two years before NY LIFE denied her disability benefits. New York Life relied on a hired gun IME doctor to deny long term disability benefits.
Ny Life denied benefits based upon the definition of disability changing from own occupation to any occupation.
