Explain how these limitations impact the degree of physical, mental, or intellectual functionality has on your ability to perform the required tasks of your occupation. All of your treating doctors need to know the struggles you face daily. Make sure your doctors understand how the symptoms you are experiencing limit or prevent you from doing your job.
How To Have Doctors Complete Disability Insurance Documentation
Let your doctors know how important it is for them to take the time to complete the medical documentation and how much you need their help. Don’t just leave the forms with your doctors. Make clear to them on your medical visit as to the purpose of the forms and what is being asked for and why. Doctors are more likely to complete the forms and cooperate if they understand the purpose of the forms and understand why your condition prevents you from performing your job.
