So far, I have not had anything denied, however my doctor told me after I went to the ortho specialist that he "thinks" that the insurance company will deny/ challenge my neck since we (meaning him) didn't mention it originally, the issue is I have had bad pain in both hands, wrists and right shoulder, the MRI for wrists and shoulders were approved as well as the emg/ nerve tests, the ortho said I have CTS on both hands, rotator cuff tendinosis (spelling) and cervical radiculopathy (c6 distribution) which most means double crush syndrome, he requested an MRI for my neck to see extent of damage, my treating doctor seemed surprised and said he would request the now 3rd MRI in 4 weeks, he said he is not sure if this will be compensable? I have had the most severe pain in my hands and shoulder, I didn't complain about my neck because it didn't hurt, if that pain is radiating from my neck, from cervical distribution how would I know that to tell my treating doctor what it is? I thought it was odd when he said, well you didn't mention your neck? The ortho has asked for approval of injections for both hands and shoulder also. I guess the treatment for any cervical issues would come after the MRI results. My concern is that I do not have an attorney now because I was advised that I should obtain one only if I start getting denials, that being said I did have a conversation with my adjuster at the very beginning of my claim and now the nurse case manager is always calling me asking for info. Should I seek an attorney now or wait to see how it goes? It's just that I have read so many of your stories I am nervous of making the mistake of talking to the adjuster/case manager and having them use it against me since I no Nothing about WC.
