I was lied to by my case managers for my short and long term disability. They advised they hired a psychotherapist for my health, however, when an issue came up that red flagged me not being able to return to work, my psychotherapist advised after submitting her recommendation that she was actually not able to submit a medical recommendation.
I am still trying to sort this out, but reading between the lines the therapist is telling me that she was hired not with me as her client, but my employer as her client, so she cannot provide medical recommendations. It is like she was hired as a coach and sold to me as a mental health professional because of her official title.
Has anyone else run into this, where you have had mental health counselling, but the service provider was actually not serving me, instead serving the company in my return to work. I feel the therapist was even not aware of her limitations as she only seemed to know that she couldn’t submit her recommendations after they were submitted.
The final discharge letter from the provider is full of untruths, and that was forwarded to my family doctor, who will surely be looking for the advice of the mental health professional.
There is a lot more to this story, but, has anyone else run into this?
