I received an email from my disability insurer this morning confirming I am approved for LTD until January 2020. My 2 year mark is approaching in May 2020.
How often can a disability insurer request information from your treating doctors/specialists?
My doctor has just answered a questionnaire for the disability insurer on October 31st, confirming I am undergoing ongoing care, and am unable to work at my (former) job or any job. In fact, she (and my other professionals) has chastised them for harassing me and wasting her time. Today’s email was to tell me they are asking her to complete another updated questionnaire.
Ironically, I see the doctor today (for further specialist referrals and a medication change). In 2 years, my disability insurer has already sent me to 2 therapists and an IME - along with my family doctor, psychologist and another IME with a psychiatrist.
Honestly, I am afraid of losing my family doctor if this constant paperwork keeps up.
