I have been away from work on leave of absent due to work place harassment and mistreatments and my STD claim was declined by Oncidium. Now Oncidium is not a insurance company, they are a third party “health management” that does leave management. Both my physicians have cleared me for gradual return to work any mentioned that I am able to fulfill my duties with accommodation . My psychologist have written a medical report asking for accommodation of reduced hours and quieter office space. However Oncidium is asking me to sign a release form for my doctors to disclose my entire medical reports. Including diagnosis, prognosis, medication, symptoms etc. Both my doctors have advised me against signing the release form and neither of them are willing to disclose more than what they have said on the physicians report. I’ve done extensive research and both my doctors are correct in saying this is illegal to ask for so many intrusive medical information and it is the breach of medical and privacy rights to ask for all my medical record just because we have ask for reasonable accommodation for me to return to work. Just to be clear I don’t receive any payments or benefits from any insurance companies or my employer while I was away on medical leave. My employer and Oncidium are so keen to get their hands on my medical records for some reason and their reasoning behind it is that they need to substantiate my reasons for being away from work. While I was away both my doctors completed countless medical reports and doctors note which was given to both my employer and Oncidium. Has anyone else had to deal with something similar? All I know is that I’m not signing anything for them.
