For those of you who don't know, I broke my tailbone in an accident while at work. I fell really, really hard. It rattled my brain. That was back in June. The insurance company is giving me crap about wanting to continue with physical therapy etc. They have fought every tiny thing. I can't sit for long periods of time and am going to have to move here in a minute. Anyway, I called the insurance lady and got her answering machine. I told her that under no circumstances is my case closed, that my rheumy thinks my AS has set into the break. That would explain why I hurt all the time. I told her that I was switching docs, from my PCP to my rheumy for treatment of this and they would be paying him now. I told her that once my rheumy was done treating me til nothing else can be done for it, he would then contact them and let them know the percentage to which I'm diabled and they are to cut me a check for the amount stated. If they do not, I'm hiring a lawyer and taking them to court. I have already contacted a lawyer for just advise and he seems to think I have a very good case for negligence. I'm so angry about the whole thing. I shouldn't have to suffer for someone else's mistake (my manager). I quit back in July and it was the best thing ever. I hated that place. I hate the insurance lady and am tired of being given 5 different answers to the same question. She needs to remember what lie she told and then stick to it.
 
Ok-I'm done venting. It just gets so very old and I know you all understand and are supportive. Thanks for listening.

Boy I can relate to what you are going through as fare as the insurance goes there was a point and time I to had to get a lawyer because my insurance did not want to pay for ceretain meds and treatments because we were told that there were other meds that could be tryed and my Rheumy told them that I could not take anti inflamatory meds because I had crohns.I'm on Humia and it took us two long years to get them to approve it.

Get a disability lawyer. The best part is that once you hire a lawyer you never need to speak to the insurance company again. They to have a right to send you to a CE exam by one of their physicians and you have to comply. Then you get a CE exam from your doctor. The Workers comp Administative Law Judge makes the final percentage of payment decision. As you can tell I went through the whole process. It all came out in the wash and it came out in my favor. The attorney is worth it. The stress of dealing with the insurance company is not good for your healing.

Hey seechelle,

I think getting a lawyer that specializes in disability is the best thing, Just hang in there, and remember that when they send you to there doctors, they may or may not jerk you around like for instance there doctor might try to convince you that it isnt as bad...just be strong and let them know that you are in serious pain, and you need to be compensated...Atleast with a lawyer, they will handle most of the paper work, and phone calls, but make sure that your lawyer is proactive as well...

again I sure hope you feel better...my prayers are with you.
