I agree with Tim, they are likely holding you over a barrel. The insurance company will often starve people to get the result that they want. It is a violation of the act and can be punished by a WC judge with the filing of a penalty petition. You were likely at an IME and they are gathering information to file to stop you benefits, though you may have a fight looming, they cannot just stop your benefits in advance of a judge’s determination. Quick note of concern – you didn’t receive any LIBC forms asking about your other income recently? That could be an issue that could create concerns for an automatic temporary suspension.
