Docotors Ranking While on Disability

Hello,

Can anyone tell me if my doctors orders regarding my medical conditions hold more power over the private disability doctors that may be reviewing my case right now?

To my knowledge -

The doctors attached to your job make the decisions. Your doctor can give input, but the final decision is made by your employer and/or representative of your employer.

I have a friend who is presently dealing with a situation such as this. I hope things turn out OK for you.

that is very scary, I have been on this for almost 3 years. they have deemed me disabled from my own occupation of 23 years. I know now I am up for a 36 month "any" occupation review. my doctor called me this evening to tell me they sent him a letter telling him that I have failed demonstrate a disability and am capable of working. he has sent letters to the disability company telling them I am considered disabled from any job permanently....

any suggestions on how I can fight this, cant afford an attorney, just spent thousands on one and he did nothing.

I was approved for ssdi in less than 3 months my first try...

Prayer works. It sounds like you have a good doctor who is willing to help you get the things you need. That should add a large degree of comfort for you.

I hope everything works out for you!

its hard thinking by the end of this month i could be homeless and without health insurance. these private disbility companies have no idea how they can ruin a person life. The government even deemed me disabled how can they do this!

Have you tried submitting the judgement that you received from the government? I would think that if you are deemed disabled from any occupation by them, then the others don't really have a thing to say. At least this is my understanding from my lawyer. I am currently going back against my old employers long term disability company for back payments and the difference between what I am paid on SSDI and what they paid me while on it.

I hope things go well for you. Have you tried looking up things about whether or not they can go against the ruling for SSDI on the net? There might be some information out there that can help you without paying a lawyer.
