    For those not on FB, the MEA on FB said:

    Are you having problems with income protection policies? Can you help a journalist?

    If you are having problems with an income protection policy and are being told you must take part in a CBT and/or a GET management programme in order to qualify for payments, or for payments to be continued, and you would be willing to speak to a journalist who is investigating ICPs and ME/CFS please contact us.

    Email: admin@meassociation.org.uk.

    We will then pass your information to the journalist involved.

    Thank you.
