Injured back on job in 2/08, filed a w/c claim, going thru all the motions as dictated by w/c. received lttr 6 months later that the issue with my back was a pre existing issue and that I had falsified my application. This issue has been resolved, however w/c is denying any further treatment, which is eventually going to be a 3 level fusion. Apparently, in 1/07 when I had to go to the er for something not even pretaining to a back issue, the neuro dr. decided to do an mri on my back, checking to see if I had MS. She told me I had a bulging disc, never hurt b/4 that time, during or until I was injured on the job. Never treated for the bulging disc issue either, nor was I told that my back was a mess. W/C pulled all previous medical records, which is fine, but they say that because the MRI done in 1/07 shows my back being as bad as the MRI done thru w/c in 2/08 that the matter is pre-existing. Like I stated earlier, the bulging disc never hurt and I was not told that I would eventually need a 3 level fusion. Even if I was aware that this was pre-existing, I have never received treatment for the issue nor did I ever file a w/c claim. What can I do about having w/c reinstate my case? I am trying to hold off on the surgery for as long as possible, but.... Please advise what I should do.
