Is someone on this board that was an actual employee or on contract with WC, such as a case worker, doctor, nurse or threapist? I wondered how the system works.

When the employee makes an appointment, does the doctor's office call IC and the caseworker says to not give that person a time off on WC and the doctor follows those rules. It is very degrading and I just wonder if the IC pushes this attitude. Or are they paid a commision for the people they make go sit in the office rather than sending them home? Even when I tell the doctor there is no restroom where he is sending me........... knowing the meds I have taken, there has to be someone giving out the orders on certain people.
The only thing that is letting me sit in the office, is the shape of my foot and the swelling. The pain seems not to be an issue.
