Short Term Disability Disaster
My doctor had me off work for a surgical removal of a large lipoma in the palm of my hand. He said at least one month off work. Aetna paid me for two weeks. I had sutures in my hand from the base of my ring finger curving toward my palm and intersecting and running all the way to my wrist. My whole palm was opened up. My sutures were in for three weeks and when they did come out. Some infection was found. I went on antibotics. Aetna admits that they have eleven pages of documentation from my surgeon. When I call Aetna, they always say it is still in review.
