Re: Back to the E.R.
Hey Micheal, Please don't shoot the mesenger but your going to have to see a comp doc. Just call the carrier and tell tem you need an alternative doc. Your going to be seen as the one that's being stubborn and they will simply cut off payments and force you financially to comply. It's that or nothing. What makes you any different than any other comp case in there eyes. Eventuallly your insurance wor comp won't cover ER trips and you will have to comply or pay out of pockeet, stubborness will only hurt you and you have no reason to start this as a battle. There is plenty of time for that should you have real problems and need surgery and extended time off to recover. You right, it's not saving them money, but it's not getting you any answers and it may cost you your pay not just meedical expecnses from unauthorized providors if there is an alternative to the one doc.
Been there and nobopdy wins with comp. Your lucky to be taken care of, thereis nio money for pain or suferring unless there was neglegence on the companies fault.
Take care, Dave
