Re: Difficulty of Getting an Mri and the Thought of Losing My Job
The question is why was is closed?
I'm in the process of reopening my workman's comp case, as I only just found out that it was closed, but not denied.
How did you switch doctors if your case is closed, who's paying?
I've switched doctors and she seems to be trying to get me at the very least into physical therapy where all other doctors didn't even try.
No, the doctor will have to request it if he feels there is a need.
Can I get an MRI without a doctor?
Those things are expensive, they won't approve it without good reason.
I don't get this fixation about an MRI - how's that going to prove this condition is work related?
How do you know that without an MRI?
I now have slightly misaligned disk and scoliosis.
How do you intend to prove this is a work related condition?
90% of America probably has the condition you describe, it comes with aging.
I hope you have a doctors excuse to justify this time off.
I have returned to work as I thought I had little choice otherwise, but now I've missed a little more than a week of work and the stress is getting to me. What programs are there to help me?
The only program I know of is Worker Compensation, either you have a claim or you don't.
