You'll have to contact the carrier for the original injury and let them know you need treatment.

If you were injured in PA, living in PA and employed in PA it is definitely a PA case. In PA you only have 3 years from the date of injury to either have your case accepted or file a claim. So, with a 2005 injury, I hope it was an accepted claim or the statute may already be blown. Did you receive a Notice of Compensation Payable? Regardless, you need to move on this. Feel free to send me a private message if you have any specific questions that you do not want addressed on the forum.
