Trusted Sources for Disability Appeal

Trusted Sources for Disability Appeal
Hi all,

While I am back at work part time now that I have my OSA and migraines under treatment, I was off for 12 weeks of FMLA due to being cognitively unable to perform my job duties, and was making multiple dangerous mistakes and didn't know why until the neurologist and sleep study. 

I am on my second appeal to Cigna, and need something from a trusted source (besides Dr Google) to back up my claim that I wasn't able to process information correctly to perform my job duties. They cited the "Dictionary of Occupational Titles".

Does anyone have any ideas?

Since it is just about 10 weeks of pay, it isn't really worth an attorney, tho I would almost like to do it for the principal of it all.

Thanks!

Your treating physician should be able to provide the proper documentation.

I'd call around and see if you can get one who'll take it on consignment.

document your dangerous mistakes (compared to your prior excellent performance) and get coworkers and boss to attest to them?
