My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: PA
I was injured about 7 months ago on the job...MRI showed Herniated Disc and deterioration. I've been able to work modified since then..but after 3 injections and 25 Physical Therapy visits the Dr. finally scheduled me for a Functional Capacity Exam..showing I needed permanent restrictions.
I've continued work with my new restrictions..and the Dr. transferred me to a pain specialist after marking me at MMI with what looks like Lumbar D.D.D. (his handwriting is attrocious). I'm scheduled to go back to the pain specialist this week and look at new options..and i've been notified that I can seek a new doctor...but I'm curious if I'm still being covered by WC. Will I start having to pay for all upcoming procedures and pain prescriptions...or are they still covered?
-thank you for your time
