    It's best to start a new thread for your specific state comp questions/issues.
    This thread is from 2007... the op's questions are no doubt resolved by now.

    It is generally much more difficult to access treatment when moving out of state, the weekly benefits are not as likely to be affected, regardless of where you live.
    But out of state Dr/providers are not as quick to accept the IW as a patient. They have enough problems with their own state comp process let alone taking on they system of even a neighboring state.

    You are fortunate rwaisr for the ease you have experienced.
