Can any one tell me how to get medical treatment with out having to wait for a year after my doctor prescribes it. I was injured in 1972 and was awarded medical treatment to cure or relieve from the effects of the injury and it has been a battle ever since. Devices to help me be mobile and therapy have been denied or made such a hassle that it has hampered any kind of rehabilitation.

Thank You

I have the same problem, and I am now waiting for a hearing regarding the
denials. This has now been 6 months, 3 denials, an IME denial, and now
waiting for a hearing date. This hassle of denials is standard wc
procedure. The work over the weak broken down person , in a battle that
only the strong survive. I love their defeats, and I will continue to
fight for my fair entitlement.

The Tarzan way is go ahead and do, what ever you need. Trouble is you still will not recoupe your money, and you'll will be a fraud to boot.

The good side is, you will recieve your medical in a more timely manner.

I've been 5-1/2 years now, kind of makes me wonder, if I would be where I am now in 2 or 2-1/2 years. Not dragging Worthle$$ Comp. around.

It's difficult enough, just trying to find an honest caring doctor.

To quote my shirt-tail brother-inlaw, what don't kill you will make you stronger!
