Do you have a workers' compensation claim?
If so, what stAte?
you have to follow the rules of your state's work comp insurance process. You have to have medical corroboration to receive disability payments.
I'm surprised your state allowed you to choose 2 docs.
Has the claim been accepted?
I don't know of any that will allow more.
Best bet is to try work and go back to the doc if still a problem.
Most health insurers will accept treatment denied by comp.
