I injured my back at work in july 2012 and the company doctor ordered me off work, I've been off work for 3 months now then company doctor finally orders an mri and refers me out to a neurosurgeon who says surgery is required. The neuro couldn't prescribe my pain med due to new kentucky drug laws and the company doctor wouldn't even see me again because he refered me out to the neuro.
So my only option was to see my pcp in order to get the pain meds I needed until i get the surgery(then the neuro says after I am in his care he can write the scripts that i will need). When I saw my pcp she said I had to give a urinalysis before she could write the script(this is a new law passed in Ky).Without hesistation I give the sample and IMMMEDIATELY afterwards notice that the procedures,protocol and risk of contanimation were suspect to say the very least!The reason I know this is because I've taken hundreds of drug screens due to my occupation and never have I failed nor tested a false positive.But this instance came back a false positive... I was/am very upset about this. Is my pcp required to give this info to workmans comp? Can workmans comp deny my claim and the surgery needed to help my back AND will workmans comp report the results of the drug screen to my employer and risk my employment and livelyhood??
