I am on disability benefits for a few years now and this year I’ve have had a medical assessment done by the insurer’s medical team. All my doctors have agreed that they are overreaching with their conclussions and many of the tests I’ve had, for hours (!!!) and during a 2 day assessment, were “inconclusive”, but the general conclusion they reached was in agreement with my doctors. This happened sometime in the spring. Now they want me go AGAIN and have a “post-assessment meeting” with ALL of them, the insurer and the medical team that have assessed me.
My questions are:
- Am I legally obligated to go, so I don’t jeopardise my benefits, although this meeting can be done through the phone (!!!)?
- Do I have the right to request to record the meeting, if I HAVE to go?
- What and how do I tell them to have this meeting via phone conference?
The medical company the insurance have hired is extremely aggressive and in few occasions my words were twisted or they stated that I’ve said something that I didn’t! Their reviews on the net are awful!
I struggle terrible with my chronic pain, anxietate and depression and I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!!! PLEASE HELP ME! PLEASE! I haven’t sleep in a few days and I am in full panic attack. Please HELP!
