All disability forms are done on a first come, first serve basis; therefore, processing time may vary. There is an additional charge if a patient needs their forms expedited. Payment is expected prior to releasing forms back to the patient.
PROCESSING TIME AND COST
Average Processing Time:5-7 days
Cost:$25.00 (one time fee per pregnancy)
If you have any special instructions regarding the forms, please indicate this on a separate sheet of paper. Include any callback numbers, fax numbers, etc.
When the processor has completed the forms, you will be contacted by phone. If contact is not made, then a voicemail message will be left. The forms will be enclosed in an envelope and placed at the front desk for pickup at your next office visit.
RECOVERY TIME FOR OBSTETRICAL PATIENTS
Vaginal Delivery: 6 weeks
Cesarean Delivery: 8 weeks
Patients may have other indications that will extend their recovery time. This is to be discussed and authorized by their provider.
Many obstetrical patients choose to extend their leave beyond what is required for recovery. For any additional leave that a patient wishes to take, they will need to contact their HR Department. According to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1990, every obstetrical patient is entitled to 16 weeks of leave.
