I’ve been on long-term disability for over five years now, and I’m concerned that they might cut me off. The insurance company is back in touch with me, asking questions, and suggesting I see certain doctors. What if I do not want to cooperate with their meddling?
Co-operation with “reasonable” requests of the insurance company is a requirement under the policy. Failure to co-operate will result in benefits being terminated. Try to use your treating physicians as advocates for you whenever possible.
