I got a BAM notice after I had my claim approved then denied after being terminated for attending school
After talking to the representative for my phone interview she was it but contradicting and didn't seem to understand how a dental offices worked.
I told her that I was hired as a part time employee because the office lacked patients therefore they could not offer me a full time position until recently. She then said that on the office website it shows that they are open five days a week.
I once again explain that I was hired for part time back office position which means that if there isn't any patients the back office staff don't go to work.
She then went back to the website, this went on for a while then ended the interview. I called back to speak to her supervisor because I knew that she didn't comprehend what I had said to her, so I repeated my story to him and he seemed to understand.
Then when I started to receive notices of payments but hadn't received any checks or debit card, I called back to ask what was going on. The representative said that my claim was approved starting from the termination date until now because they wrote down that I was not available for full time work therefore my claim is being denied after that end date! A few days after I received a DAM letter with a packet to fill out, I am not sure what happening because I still need to appeal.
This is the reason why I was terminated, after being rehired at a part-time position (even though I was willing to work full-time and drive to their two office locations and since I was cross trained I was more useful) and getting my school scheduled approved.
The doctor said that he needed full time employees starting soon (this Conversation took place on Wednesday), which this made my day because I needed the money. I had only a few weeks till the school semester ended so I knew that I could have modified my finals to accommodate his schedule like I had been sine my rehired date. When I came in on Saturday, he terminated my position asking me if I can start full time that Monday. I told him that
I needed a few days to get my school extension paperwork in to the office while repeating over and over that I was willing to work full time but then he held his hand up and said "yeah yeah but you can't start Monday, so I'm letting you go".
Chris, I don't understand the reason behind this DAM letter or the unclear claim denial. Not sure if I should seek professional help to help me with my claim.
Thank you for having this website and for giving us a peace of mind when it come to some of these questions!
DAM or BAM Letter? And Why I Need You to Designate Which State This is Happening In
Depending on which acronym is correct.. DAM or BAM, would you please spell it out for me anyway so I know what it stands for at least. Don't know what DAM might mean, but BAM to me at least, stands for Benefit Accuracy Measurements.
And the name of the state is ultimately going to be important to me because you tell me the denial was based upon something to do with being a part-time employee.
Therefore, I need to know which state this is all happening in, just so I can check on whether the state has a part-time worker provision that might make a difference. In any case, you just need to appeal any denial determination timely
There would still be time to discuss whether you need professional help, or just a little free help might be enough for you to help yourself once this is done.
One more thing .. "After talking to the representative for my phone interview she was it but contradicting and didn't seem to understand how a dental offices worked.?
Not sure what you meant to say, but I've got some ideas that your denial had more to do with your employer responding to your claim you had refused full-time work due to school interfering and your answers during the interview must not of gotten across to the interviewer .. or supervisor that you were not restricting yourself then, or now that you're unemployed to "part-time work".
Really .. need the name of the state this is all happening in.
