I just received a phone call from my insurance comp. stating they are disallowing my short term disability. All the necessary paper work was submitted, that wasnt the issue. Believe it or not they do not agree with the neurosurgeon opinion that I should not work until after my surgery 6/25/09.
I am now in a situation where the doc will not allow me to return to work and my employer will not allow me to return without a doctor release. Now what do I do? I am 4 weeks now with no paycheck, a single mother that gets no child support
Sure I can appeal but god knows how long that will take. The insurance company stated that if this was such a necessary surgery I would of been in surgery by now! I am scheduled for a corpectomy on c-5and6, fusions of levels c4-5,c5-6.c6-7 with cage and plate.Do they think I am getting this done for the fun of it!!!!! Sorry everyone for venting but I am MAD. I am in a lot of pain, on a lot of pain medication and dont think I could work if I tried. Has anyone else had to deal with this? If so any ideas how to resolve this? Thanks for letting me vent
