    Default Nurse Case Manager Fired for Not Saving Enough Money

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: DC

    No questions just want to share a odd story. So I am in PT today and I get a call from a woman saying she is my new nurse case manager? I asked her what happen to my last one? She said she was fired! Of course she would not tell me why only that I was to work with her now. This will be NCM #3 in the last 20 months. I was respectful and asked her to read over my file and call me late next week to discuss upcoming treatments and hung up. I right away call my last NCM and she actually picks up. I like her and she was helping me out. She did what she said she would even when the IC didn't like it. During our conversation she said she was let go for failing to contain costs and failing to direct treament. I believe her. We have been working together for almost a year and she has helped me many times. Just goes to show that we the IWs are not the only people at the mercy of ICs and to always keep in the back of your mind that they only take actions to save money even when it comes to taking out there own people.

    of course, it's a business.
    workers comp is not welfare or charity.
    injured workers should not confuse them.

    all insurance makes money when it doesn't pay claims.
    it has been that way since LLoyds of London in the 1600's.

    I went through 6 NCM in 6 years. I have not had a NCM in 2 years. I trust none of them...... Watch your backs....... Watch what you tell them..

    Remember, There job is to get you of WC ASAP Bottom Line.
