Bank Vice President
BANK VICE PRESIDENT WITH SEVERE FIBROMYALGIA DISABLED FROM OWN OCCUPATION IN AETNA CLAIM.
Fibromyalgia, though not completely understood, can have devastating effects on those who suffer from it. The symptoms and debilitating pain from the chronic illness had basically ended C. Ross Mossler’s ability to effectively perform at his job at City National Bank. After years of suffering through brain fog, widespread pain, muscle spasms, fatigue and memory loss, Mossler forced himself to quit the career he loved. While fighting through the symptoms of fibromyalgia, Mossler was in for another battle when his insurance company, Aetna Life, denied him the disability benefits he believed he qualified for. After proving his medical history and his inability to return to the job, Robert J. Rosati was able to recoup retroactive benefits for Mossler and to obtain a ruling where the policy’s 24-month benefit clause was upheld and adhered to.
