Can my std provider deny me two additional weeks of coverage when extended time off order by my dr.

I have been off work on std since 5/3/2012.My std provider approved time off through 6/6/2012.My doctor extended my time off for two weeks till 6/21/2012.He sent the paper work in to the std provider on 6/4/2012.

I do not know any specifics about your time off or the policy provisions for short term disability. Normally, if a health care provider (doctor) states that you cannot return to work for an additional period of time, and your time limit on short term disability is not exhausted, then your short term disability provider will grant the additional time. Again I am basing that answer without knowing specifics details about your case.

An employer and/or provider can also request another health care provider opinion, before granting additional benefits.
