receive the requested information. If you have any questions, please contact me at the telephone number below.
2. Dear Health Care Provider:
Your patient has requested an accommodation (describe the requested accommodation here)
because of functional limitations caused by his/her disability. Since the disability is not visible, and we do not have documentation
on file, I would appreciate information that would allow me to determine whether this individual has a disability covered by the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The information that you provide will also help me determine whether the requested accommodation

The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA) prohibits employers and other entities covered by
GINA Title II from requesting or requiring genetic information of an individual or family member of the individual, except as
specifically allowed by this law. To comply with this law, we are asking that you not provide any genetic information when
responding to this request for medical information. `Genetic information' as defined by GINA, includes an individual's family
medical history, the results of an individual's or family member's genetic tests, the fact that an individual or an individual's family
member sought or received genetic services, and genetic information of a fetus carried by an individual or an individual's family
member or an embryo lawfully held by an individual or family member receiving assistive reproductive services.
At present, we only need the following information:
(a) the nature, severity, and duration of the impairment;
(b) one or more of the activities the impairment limits (walking, reaching, breathing, etc.);
