Re: Ic Wants to Make Me Fly to Houston for a Week at a Time
See Ut Admin Code R612-300-2
I can't take him with me because the last time he flew on a plane he started showing signs of anaphylaxis from the peanuts (even though no peanuts were served on our flight) and we had to take him to the E.R. Can't leave him here, can't take him with me, can't endure that kind of travel,
3. If the requirement of subsection A.2. are met, an injured worker subject to a preferred provider program must seek initial medical care from a preferred provider unless:
a. No preferred provider is available;
b. The injured worker believes in good faith that his or her medical condition in not a workplace injury; or
c. Travel to a preferred provider is unduly burdensome.
In other words you are not required to abide by the "Right of payor to designate initial health care provider" if you can show it's "unduly burdensome."
You need to lawyer up, this NCM shouldn't be interfering in your treatment plan.
the NCM called and said that they were thinking about flying me out to Houston for a week at a time
for "Pain Management" so I can get off these medications.
Also, you are not required to travel between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., unless approved by the Commission.
See UT admin code R612-300-8
2. Travel may not be required between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., unless approved by the Commission.
Breeze through your states rules to get acquainted with your rights.
Consult and hire a lawyer immediately, you're being bullied.
