Going for Broke
Aetna cut off my disability payments when I needed them the most!! I was getting Aetna disability payments when I went out on short term disability. As soon as the short term issue turned into a long term one, Aetna left me hanging out to dry!!! I couldn't believe it, they told me that my disability was no longer covered because it was a Workers compensation issue and that I had to take it up with the company and with compensation. In the meantime I was disabled with absolutely no income coming in. I ended up having to drain all of my saved income, including my 401K plan just to make ends meet! What kind of gig is that? How can an insurance company promise coverage and not deliver? My financial position has been destroyed because of it and I wound up filing for bankruptcy - to anyone who reads this you can't count on Aetna paying you.
