During my annual medical recertification evaluation, my doctor noted that my disability has dissipated and that I am now able to go back to my job or some other job. Can my benefits be cut-off or terminated based on my doctor's indications.

Absolutely.  If your doctor has indicated in your annual medical recertification evaluation that you have regained your ability to work in your job or any gainful job for that matter, your benefits may cease.  It will depend on the definition of disability in your policy.
