I cant go back to work until work has special pages filled out from the doc. I dropped the paperwork off at the docs on Friday and was told that they should have them for me today, Monday. Usually it takes 7-10 business days to get the paperwork filled out. Mind you that I pay $30 everytime the doc has to fill out any type of forms for me.
I call today and was told that no they arent filled out yet and that it takes 7-10 days. The doc is in on Wed so maybe they will be done then.
I call work and tell them what is happening. The manager isnt too happy but she has to have the paperwork before I can back to work. My paperwork has to evaluated to make sure I am able to do my job.
Also, Prudential called and asked when the doc said I could return to work. The date that I am able to return to work per the doctor is today, Monday. So, my short term disability is based on when that doc says I can go back to work. But I cant go back to work until work has paperwork from the doc in 7-10 business days. I will have no STD payment this week because I can offically go back to work today, but work wont let me until I have more paperwork saying I can.
I am pissed! I just wanna go back to work. How many hoops do I have to jump through? I just feel like I am getting screwed and I dont like it!
