McIntyre v. Aetna

We received a favorable decision in an Aetna disability case today, where the Court found that Aetna's denial was unreasonable and that it ignored the evidence in its own files: "It is puzzling that Aetna’s explanation for its denial in the letter sent to Plaintiff states that neither Dr. Wang nor Dr. Mehta provided “submitted any clinical rationale or any resent [sic] test results,” when both doctors included test results, including the recent MRI results, and all of Plaintiff’s medical records in faxes submitted to Aetna in support of their clinical assessments finding Plaintiff permanently disabled."
