In all honesty I had lost my job due to my migraine/vertigo issues. I was on "paid" short term disability for 4 months....and then the insurance company did not have "sufficient" enough evidence for me to continue on "paid" short term disability. about
8 months later I finally convinced my doctor's to send me a note to return to work to see what would happen.....by then my position had been filled and I had been let go.
Migraines are HORRIBLY hard to work with insurance companies with.....even though I had piles of paperwork and notes from several docs, including specialists to back them up.
I feel for you totally.....I wish you the very very best of luck with this!!
