I have a 10 mo old dd who has Down Syndrome. I applied for and received fmla through my job when she was a few months old. I used it for her PT, eye Dr, cardiologist, and ENT. My company went to a new system that goes January to December instead of a rolling yr. I re applied. They are saying that all her appointments are preventative and they don't cover that. DS isn't a "condition" , she is no different than any other child and I can't just take her " Willy nilly" to any Dr and have them give me time off.( unpaid btw) I tried to explain all the things she is screened for, the health issues she could develop etc. Anyone else had this issue ?
