Re: release of medical records

You probably need to have an attorney contact her and advise her that she is obstructing a disability determination. That is called intentional interference with contractual rights, and it could potentially result in a lawsuit against her.

Get your attorney to do it, don't do this yourself. It's probably worth the $120 or so it will cost you to get the letter done.

Good luck
