Just to introduce myself and give a little background:
I was injured at work 12/06/10 and have been a lurker here whenever I am in need of advice. Well, I find myself registering because I have a question that doesn't seem to be answered anywhere else.
I am a 25 year old guy who, since I was injured, had to move back in with his parents. Originally, the doctors though I might have injured my SI joint, but as I found out 2 months ago, I have three herniated discs in my lower back. I'm going in for another MRI shortly to see a spinal surgeon to hear my options.
Now, I have a problem. My parents have sold their house and my fiance and I have to find a new place to live. Which, is fine, we knew about this going in. My injury is the whole reason why we had to move in the first place. The problem I have is that we are moving to another state (MA) for her (and eventually mine as well) Grad school.
Can I transfer my worker's comp doctors to my new area? Can I even move without losing my comp? How would I go about doing this the right way, or do I have to move to MA with her and keep my address in NY at a family members house. My injury won't let me commute. I would really like to know, so I can get the ball rolling. I have to be in my new place by July 1st.
Thank you all for your time and whatever help you can give me.
