Why asthma patients should be eligible for LTD benefits

Some workers who can no longer do their jobs after developing asthma should know there are various medications available to help them control its disabling symptoms. Below are the medications that could be considered by individuals afflicted with asthma:

  • Inhaled medication, such as beta agonists, corticosteroids, or a combination of the two
  • An oral form of corticosteroids
  • Regular Omalizumab shots
  • Theophylline medicines
  • Leukotriene modifier medications
  • Cromolyn sodium

Individuals who have developed asthma should note that long-term asthma medications are often expensive and in some situations could be effective if combined with other medications. For those who become disabled and can no longer continue doing their jobs due to serious symptoms of asthma, it is worth considering applying for long-term disability benefits to afford medications.

Many families, unfortunately, have to deal with a great financial loss if their loved one can no longer continue their work due to debilitating asthma symptoms.
