Re: Moved Out of State, Cannot Find a W/C Dr. in the State I Moved To.help
No, no one forced you to move without notice, that was your decision.
Does the W/C company have to pay for me to go back to my state of injury, for me to get treatment?
You must coordinate this move with your doctor beforehand so he can provide enough meds until you see the next doctor and coordinate your care.
The carrier is obligated to provide treatment only if you follow protocol, which includes keeping them and the doctor informed of any changes and cooperating with treatments.
Moving without first notifying your doctor isn't cooperating with treatments.
Now who's fault is that?
I am in pain, and no where to turn.
You seriously never thought of that before you suddenly picked up and moved without notice?
If you moved without informing your doctor, they may claim you're not cooperating with treatments and cut benefits.
What did you tell your doctor at your last appointment?
Did you inform him of your intentions to move and ask for a referral or how to get one?
If you have a narcotics contract you may have bigger problems.
This is a hell of a time to think about that after you already made a decision to move.
What other options do I have.
You should've coordinated this with your doctor and the carrier before you moved.
I've always questioned when someone claiming to be in pain just picks up and moves without making plans or coordinating with the doctor and carrier.
Why would someone in need of treatment, in terrible pain and in need of "possible surgery soon" just suddenly pick up and move without worrying about the consequences? Somethings missing to this story.
I'd say to accept your mistake and go back to get treatment - this time do it right and coordinate your move with the doctor and carrier before doing so.
