Hello out there!
This has happened not once but twice in my 10 year battle with the shitheads who are: SIF. I can't go anywhere without their authorization, right? So, OK, right after my reinjury, I see the surgeon who operated on me (sound logical to you?). So, I make one round trip--he states at that time, that he saw that my disc was herniated...the same one he had fixed! So, I get a referral in Syracuse...and went to see this guy. And then, back to the original Dr. Well, I live in a tiny little town in the Adirondacks--It's 200 plus miles one way to see these Drs....SIF had the balls to tell me that they have determined that this is excessive mileage and I was not reimbursed a dime!
Now, and years later...they have me going to a pain specialist...I've been making 142.4 round trips since early November of last year...11 trips in total! SIF's very own Gerard Fulop had the balls to tell me: that this mileage was excessive...and to be fair and reasonable, he's going to pay me for 60 mile round trips!!! Does anyone know if this is even legal??? I told him that I would drive exactly 30 miles, park my car and wait for the SIF limo to take me the rest of the way...I hope this strikes a nerve with this sleazy <FONT COLOR="ff0000"></FONT>...but, I doubt it. I hate them, and sadly I hate my life and wish I could just lie down to sleep and never wake up!!! Does THIS sound familiar to anyone else? Please respond,,,,I'm seriuosly considering eating my entire pain-med script...all at once! 10 years of scrutiny, dehumanization, and abuse are all I can bear....Since this is a life or death posting, I'd appreciate it if my words didn't get deleted!
