MCO refuses to treat me anymore unless I sign agreement of treatment - awolf58 - 08-13-2012

SadI have a settled claim with Saif. They have Kaiser Permenante as my MCO and they have treated me for 10 years I have requested a new doctor and out of Kaisers care due to finding miss diagnoices, malpractice and Kaiser refusing to treat me unless I agree with and sign a form from them. They have been requested by me and Oregon Workers Comp. that I be opted out of Kaiser. Kaiser refuses to release me and SAIF says its up to KAISER. I refuse to go back to KAISER PERM. and Our states Workers comp board says all they can do is request what I have requested. I cannot beleive these agencys can decide my quality of life as they havefrom the start Saif & Kaiser that is. I gone without any pallative care for almost two years and my quality of life has taken a downfall due to lack of pallative care. Is thereanything I can do? My case has been a mess since I had surgery and settled with SAIF with many post operation findings by me. Even that my attorney had previously been a attorney for SAIF before private practice. Im getting close to being unable to walk among other related disabilitys due to lack of care and/or malpratice in KAISER PERMENANTES care.

I hope not.I just want what was granted to me at settlement. Palative care! I gave up all other rights because I beleived my doctor at Kaiser knew what he was talking about.

see if SAIF will buy out their future liability.
you may need a medicare set aside but it will give you control over your medical care.

if your problem is with certain doctors, you should be able to switch care within Kaiser to another doctor.
you haven't given up your right to file a malpractice claim. the difficulty will be finding an atty willing to put the time and effort into the case if the monetary value is not there.
