SAN JOSE – A San Jose woman alleges her disability benefits were wrongfully terminated after receiving payments for almost two years.
Theresa Day filed a complaint on Dec. 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose Division against Anthem Blue Cross Life and Health Insurance Co. alleging violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2013, she became disabled and was initially receiving disability benefits from the defendant until the benefits were terminated in November 2015. The plaintiff holds Anthem Blue Cross Life and Health Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide prompt and reasonable explanation for its denial of the plaintiff's claim.
The plaintiff seeks payment of disability benefits due to the plaintiff, waiver of plaintiff's insurance premiums, immediate reinstatement, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Glenn R. Kantor and Peter S. Sessions of Kantor & Kantor LLP in Northridge.
