Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you had these plans and were covered at the time of your disability, then you should have been paid if it was a supplemental policy. You would have to sue for breach of contract, but the problem here is that if this happened in 2011, the statute of limitations in FL to sue for breach of contract is 5 years from the date of your injury, so you are getting very close (if you have not exceeded that time). If your injury was less than 5 years ago, then you would need to hurry to file a breach of contract claim against Cigna before the statute of limitations expires.
You would need a local attorney to represent you on this separate breach of contract claim.
