My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: virginia
I am getting counseling sessions through a therapist for depression stemming from a worker's compensation injury. The injury ended not only my career, but, ended any hope of future employment. I have been through a lot when it comes to situations and worker's comp. After a decade of fighting them, I can't believe that they are still doubting my injury claims and playing their stupid games. I will never give up the fight, and, each time they put me through hell, it just makes me madder and want to fight them even more.
A new situation has now arisen that I'm not sure how to handle. The insurance company wants to listen to my conversations with my mental health counselor. I don't feel comfortable with this at all. If they are going to be listening, I am going to be worried that they are going to misconstrue my words and make it into something that it's not (as we all know, they are famous for that!). If they are going to be listening to my conversations I can imagine that I will not talk freely as I need to do to cope with my situation. My question is, is this legal for them to do? I find it a violation of my privacy in a moral fashoin, but, I'm not sure about the legal fashion.
Does anyone have any advice?
