My GP is the one who agreed I should be off work. 2 years later and some specialists, I have no solution to the pain and no improvement. Insurer ordered reviews after denying claim for a year and a half. Doctor report agreed I was unable to perform my occupation but could do sedentary work despite all my reports etc to the contrary indicating sitting, standing were pain inducing. Insurer planned back to work meeting immediately following that report. Stated my GP did not send a “rebuttal”. The GP appears to be of the mindset despite my symptoms, etc, if insurer says, you must return and so the return is happening but being asked to attend before any ergo assessment completed for work space and definitely before any equipment received. 1) is this normal? You return without the adaptations in place you need and just suffer through the pain until they are approved?
2) are there specialists etc out there who will go against an insurance report by a doc if they assess you and feel you are not at the level suggested? It seems some don’t want to rock the boat or upset an insurer. Should I keep looking?
