I have been dealing with work comp for 16 years so I understand your plight. Sadly my feeling is that there is a good chance they will let your Dr. walk.
I finally settled a few months ago. I accepted a low but half decent amount of money because it was written up as to be tax free. I have medical on my neck for life.
If they refuse to pay for a procedure the signed settlement states that they will also have to pay my attorney fees to ensure I get the needed medical help. After 30 days of them refusing a medical option my state law is that my own personal insurance will have to provide the care.....at that point my attorney will bring the issue to court for my ins to be reinbursed.
Do you have an attorney? From your post it does not sound like it. Do you have your own personal insurance and a state law similar to mine?
