Three questions. 1. I was in a rollover car accident and out of work for 7 weeks. 2 days before before I was released to return to work, I broke my foot. My doctor from the car accident gave me the ok to return to work and i paid $145.00 for that evaluation visit. I filed for disability but was denied because the Dr. wouldnt complete the forms until I have $145.00 a disability evaluation visit. Wasn't the visits I had for 7 weeks enough for disability? The Dr. who took care of my foot filled out the claim form within 2 days, and mailed it without any added fee or appoinment for six weeks. Question 2. What is a fair fee for filling out the forms? Question 3. I've lost almost 5 months of work. Ive been with my employer for 6 years (waitress). Can they terminate me for my time of disability?

Well, since you are ok now and is ready to join back the workforce, I doubt that you would qualify for the disability coverage. Also, the disability policies have a waiting period before starting the benefits, and 7 weeks is a very short period of time.

Why??are these two stints of disabilities related to each other?

It may well depend upon the doctor and his/her professional ethics.



Has this doctor treated you or you have gone to him to get a second opinion? if the second option is correct then I guess that he can charge for the time he has spent on you.

But if there is a short term disability, a waiting period of 1 week is usually what exists.

Anyway, Cindi, why did you wait so long before you claimed disability? Are you on employer provided disability insurance? In this case if you want to file for short term disability, you will start receiving the benefits once your sick leave has expired.

This will depend on the contract(if any) that you have with your employer. If you have a Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) signed with your employer, then they have every right to terminate you if your FMLA has run out.
