My mental health provider (from the VA; I'm a disabled veteran) has provided me with an Emotional Support Animal letter for me to give to my apartment management. The letter she wrote states that I am "engaging in mental heath care," "condition of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder," and "coping with their mental illness." Can I redact those 3 specific details on the letter before I print it out? I don't want them to know my specific diagnosis out of fear of retaliation, plus I feel I am protected by HIPAA from having to disclose those specific phrases.
Also, I know that I can request my original pet deposit be refunded. Does that mean I can request the deposit refund now, or can I only request it whenever I end up moving out?
Thank you for your advice!
