Has anyone been on long term disabity due to seizures?
I've worked for a company for over 15 years, and I've had epilepsy most of my life. I've tried many different medications and even had epilepsy surgery at the Cleveland Clinic. I now have complex partial seizures on average 8 per month. I also have type I diabeles and chronic adrenal deficiency. I've recently used all of my short term disability due to my seizures and feeling of extreme weakness (due to a combination of the epilepsy and adrenal deficiency.)
I have the disability insurance under Cigna, and my short term disability was approved by them based on what my Cleveland Clinic neurologist said. I'm now done with the Short term, and Cigna will now decide if I'm allowed on Long term.
Has anyone gone through this process?
