yeah... SH does have alot of these days.
Ok...so make up your mind.in 2003 the court did limit the payment to the pre-permanent and stationary period (dept of rehab v WCAB -Lauher).
If an IW has been released to return to work, MMI, there are no longer TTD benefits paid...the IW is not "disabled".
The IW is seeking treatment...NOT the employer, the employer's insurer, the administrative director, the appeals board, or a workers' compensation administrative law judge,, as SH has provided and defined in 4600.
ok.... post the authority. There is no reference in 4600 to wage loss being paid by carrier, or employer once an EE has returned to work and continues to seek treatment.it's long been decided that the labor code requirement for the employer to provide treatment fulfills the requirement and applies to all the costs outlined in 4600.You like to throw that around... but you have nothing to back up your opinion.we've had this dispute before and you are still wrong.
