Federal Lawsuits Involving Sedgwick CMS
"After working for over 29 1/2 years with AT&T, I became ill and I needed to utilize my STD benefits. Not once did Sedgwick try to assist me with my claim. All they did was delay, deny, disrespect me. They asked for information, but wouldnt tell you what. I would send documentation that they would say they never recieved. They lied to my boss saying I would be returning to work even though my doctors never released me and before my appeal process was denied. I was never given the opportunity to be evaluated by an IME as stated in my SPD. I requested, from Sedgwick on Oct. 27, 2008 all documents and medical records that were used in the denial of my original claim. This information was needed to prepare my appeal. I sent this request to them by fax which they confirmed receipt by phone conversation. I also sent a certified letter requesting this documentation. On Jan. 12, 2009 I received a letter stating that they had received my request for this information on Oct. 27,2008, and that I would receive them in 14 days. These records arrived FEDEX the same day Jan. 12,2009 These records arrived almost 3 months after my request and 30 days after my appeal was denied After being told my appeal was denied and that I wasnt sick, SUSAN THE SEDGTHUG, called 911 from Texas, (I live in Missouri)and Susan the Sedgthug told them their was a medical emergency at our house. On one hand they say I am not sick and the next minute they are calling an ambulance. I was forced to return to work on Dec. 22, 2008 against my doctors orders. I was told to return to work or face termination. On that same day I was laid off. I was 45 days short of having enough years of service plus my age to receive my full pension. My boss knew I was on the surplus list in July or Aug. of 2008. I went out sick on Aug. 28, 2008. I truly believe the reason I was denied STD benefits was that there was no way AT&T going to let me go out on disability when they knew I was being surplused. AT&T WANTED ME BACK AT WORK IRREGARDLESS OF MY MEDICAL CONDITION. THE REASON WAS TO KEEP ME FROM REACHING MY 30 YEAR MARK AND MY FULL PENSION. I believe that AT&T and Sedgwick CMS worked hand in hand in the denial of my health benefits, to keep me from making my 30 years and my full pension."
"Even after the Judge said they could not stop my workers comp. checks they have anyway. I was also being denied any and all medical for my neck, even though the WorkMed/(((Redacted)))Doctor (a D.O.) where my boss took me said that I have both neck & shoulder injuries, with (2) two Board Certified D.O.s and (2) two Orthopedic Surgens that all concur on my injuries due to exrays & MRIs. An EMG now shows nerve damage at C5 on the left side."
"SEDGWICK CMS HANDLED MY W/C CLAIM AND LONG TERM DISABILITY CLAIM, THEY ALWAYS SEEMED ONE STEP AHEAD OF MY LAWYER AND I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND IT. THEY CUT OF MY DISABILITY EVEN THOUGH MY DR. SAID I NEEDED ANOTHER SURGERY. I CALLED THEM 5 MONTHS LATER AND ASKED WHY THEY STOPPED PAYING FOR MY W/C MEDS, THE WOMEN ON THE PHONE WHO WOULD ONLY GIVE HER FIRST NAME LOOKED IT UP ON THE COMPUTER AND LISTED OFF ALL MY PERSONAL MEDICATION. I ASKED HER HOW SHE HAD THAT INFORMATION SINCE I NO LONGER WORDED FOR THE COMPANY AND SHE HUNG UP. I DID SOME CHECKING AND FOUND OUT SEDGWICK AND UNITED HEATH CARE ARE IN BED TOGETHER (LOOK IT UP ) LOOK UP THE JURIS PROGRAM .WHO OWNS WHO'S STOCKS .I HAVE ASKED MY SENATOR TO INVESTIGATE THIS WHOLE CROOKED DEAL AND IF HE WONT I'M TAKING IT TO THE MEDIA, THEN LET ALL THE DIRT COME OUT AND SEE HOW MANY PEOPLE THEY SCREWED OVER THE YEARS. DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT LOOK IT UP THEN CALL YOUR SENATOR, THAT IS IF HE'S NOT GETTING KICK BACKS TOO."
"DO NOT TRUST SEDGWICK ! Lies and more lies,my checks were late so i called....our printer is broken....the claims manager has a cold....the claims manager had to take his mother to the doctor....there's a glitch in the system...the checks in the mail...they didnt pay my therapist for 5 months so they filed a petition with the state and won,sedgwick was forced to pay 10 percent more because of the lateness of the payment,i have been waiting since january for specific loss payment,i even have my company calling them and they get the same excuses...so beware."
"horrible, i have been injured 9 months - 4 months were just trying to get approval - dont trust them"
"have been dealing with Sedgwick for 18 months it has been a nightmare, I have experienced everything you have posted.
I have no advice , unfortunately they stop checks whenever they feel like it so put whatever extra way for the time they do this and they also like to have you watched."
"I been fighting these bastards for over 5 years. They took 3.5 years to pay me my mileage pay. The adjuster ask me to send her supervisor a email saying what a good job she was doing and she would mail me my check. It never happened. It took another 5 months then I received it. Again they are messing with my medication. I called the Corp. office and put them on notice that there are websites showing office locations and managers` names. Here is a website site to post for all that can find people if needed. It`s a nice tool if you are looking for that long lost uncle. www.zabasearch.com shows even the listed phone numbers and title holder on properties. Run but you can`t hide God will catch up with them all."
"I am new on here and have seen the posting on Liberty! I was wondering if anyone on here has had the honor of dealing with the SI management comapany called Sedgwick? From what I have read the have offices in many different states, but they seem to only manage the very large money makers.
Such as GE, Lincoln electric, AT&T, Target, Wal-Mart, sears Holdings and companies like these."
"If you have any insite on how to deal with them please let me know because they are unbelievably horrid! Claims Adjuster never answer phone calls or return calls, take prescriptions to get filled and they have put a lock on so cant get them filled or get a hold of her to get the lock off, wont approve any treatments, constantly going to IME (2 every 3 months) then deny, deny, deny"
"Great day today..walked out front door and there was a evict notice..just keeps getting better and better..Now i know why people go postal....My state rep got back to me..they wanted claim number for WC..hope they can help..dosent hurt"
"I know how awful being in the position is - the people on this post got me through the night last night and maybe I can help do the same for you. I will be in your shoes in about 2 weeks when I cannot pay the rent due to being cut off from WC IC, (money cut off - not medical). I won't be getting any more checks apparently and they don't have to tell you that until after the determination from what I've heard. I received the advice to call all the churches around me and apply for emergency help with the rent and electricity. Please do that - call your local community action groups (listed in phone books). Look up Food Banks in the yellow pages - people have told me they are wonderful. we can only try to encourage and comfort each other - I can't even get a decent lawyer to take my case !!
Call the Kiwanis, Rotary, Salvation Army and Catholic churches have a great many charities. Interfaith Caregivers would be another one. You are not alone - if you move to AZ you can share my 2 bedroom apt - maybe between us we could scrape enough together to keep it"
"Sedgwick CMS denied a workers compensation case for a 3.5' L-shaped Rotator Cuff tear in left shoulder. I was working at Home Depot & suffered a torn Rotator Cuff & LAC Osteoarthritis. I am right handed, but picked up a small item with my left hand because it was closest.
I remember a bolt of pain strike my entire left side, I screamed & just kept screaming. I am not one to usually make a scene, but I had co-workers running to try & help me. The pain was intense. I could not move my arm at all. This happened on June 26, 2005, today is August 2, 2008.
I will admit originally the injury report stated I had a 'heart attack' Only the HRM knew this because he wrote it. (thought injury would look bad on the company books).
But my doctor in the morning wrote out a slip for shoulder injury to give to Home Depot. It was not until 7/15/2005 that I found the DX error, but I notified Sedgwick with-in the hour. They said they would correct it on the computer before I hung up. Home Depot was also notified. My doctor ordered a MRI to r/o tear, request denied. My surgeon ordered MRI twice, denied, Sedgwick's IME doctor also requested, denied.
On my third court date with lawyer in Feburary 2006 the judge ordered the MRI to be covered. Eight months for MRI, Ten months for surgery.
Two months after that I lost my job as it had been an entire year later.
The deltoid muscle needed to be split in surgery, very painful! And surgery failure May 2007. Confirmed by MRI 6/2007. Case closed 7/2007. August 2008 claim still in worker's comp review. With 10th court date coming up. No monies coming in."
