Has your doctor diagnosed you with cardiovascular disease? You may be eligible to receive long term disability benefits if you have purchased a group disability plan from a private insurer or have coverage through your employer.
According to a report from Medline Plus, middle aged adults in the United States should start meeting the American Heart Association’s Heart Health Goals of:
1. Maintaining a healthy weight and diet;
2. Being physically active;
3. Not smoking;
4. Having adequate blood sugar levels;
5. Having adequate cholesterol levels;
6. Having good blood pressure.
The study shows that just one out of every 2,000 middle aged adults in the United States are meeting those goals.
If you are unable to work as a result of cardiovascular disease, you should consult with a cardiac long term disability attorney. Unfortunately, long term disability carriers do not make it easy for the disabled to get the benefits that they deserve. If your cardiovascular condition makes it impossible for you to work and you have been denied your long term disability benefits, Nancy Cavey can help you cut through the red tape and fight for your disability benefits no matter where you live in the United States.
