Default OPERS Disability

I'm on Ohio Public Employees Retirement (OPERS) disability or as they call it Early Retirement for the last 3 years because of Parkinson's disease. Also on Medicare & Medicaid. Got a letter from Managed Medical Review Organization (MMRO) a couple of months ago with a bunch of papers for me and my doctor to fill out about my disability. Filled out papers, sent them in then 2 months later get another letter from MMRO that they need doctor's notes from last 2 visits sent in by less than 2 weeks. Doctor sent them in, then a get a letter from MMRO that they didn't receive note from doctor and that notified OPERS that as a result my non-compliance a hold will be placed on my disability benefit. This happened this Friday so I've been worried all weekend about it. Going to try and contact OPERS Monday to see what's going on. Thanks just needed to send this out and see what people think of it.

make sure everything you send them is mailed registered with a return signature receipt

Default OPERS withholding Disability checks

Went on OPERS & MMRO's websites to look for an appeal form and couldn't find any to appeal MMRO's & OPERS decision to withhold my Disability Checks. Will have to call after lunch to double check. Seems like it would be unlawful not to even have an appeal process when MMRO makes a decision to stop my only income. Have an appointment with the doctor next week so I can see if the problems at her end or if it's with MMRO.

Guess I should wait until my Doctor's appointment next week and talk to her directly instead of the office staff. Either the office staff didn't forward the info needed by my doctor or the doctor didn't fill it out or it got lost/misplaced somewhere between here or there. Might have to have them call MMRO and then fax it to them right so they can verify that they received it. Thinking about emailing my Congressman, and local news if that doesn't fix it.

Doctor resent info again and I got a call from MMRO saying they received it. They also said they will continue with my assessment for my any Occupation claim. At this point I don't think I could even pass a physical or a job interview plus you would think it would be too much of a liability to even think of making me try to get a job. Have an appointment with a Neuropsychologist next week because I have been smelling things that aren't there like oranges, coconut, gas, burnt plastic and also doing things like putting potato chips in fridge, almost put hand soap on toothbrush a few times and other things.
