Re: work comp dilemma
[QUOTE=MikeLite;5121555]Been under care of work comp in Colorado for 2 1/2 years now...
Latest was artificial disc replace went 4months as ago.. going to pt and slowly working on strengthening the core...main Dr wants to close me out and get a maximum medical improvement rating in about 2 months..but I know it takes longer than that to progress and feel less pain...just we wondering what I can do to convince the primary care dr to quit getting to just end all care from the insurance coverage? Anyone have this type of issue? I do have have attorney and wondering if they are the key to help me to continue to receive care with the system[/QUOTE]
Hi mikelite, My husband hired a lawyer to be my advocate in settling with the wc insurance & I got 7 years full medical. My neurosurgeon waited 2 years & still didnt release me so hopefully your surgeon will be able to watch your progress longer & keep you in his care, not the primary dr. Is this a possibility?
