PS in Cali? I think NOT!
I think NOT but what do I really know?...sigh..

Hello All!

I'm sure many of you have crossed this road so your insight is more than welcome.

I have two claims which happened weeks apart earlier this year.
I switched doctors abt 4 months ago was working at the time on vicodin, tramadol, sleeping at work. Unsafe at work. Dr. Refused to take me off because he claimed the company wanted all employees working. I bit the bullet, hoping to switch providers so I could get some honest eval....therapies were much appreciated but didn't get to the root of my problem.

A few weeks after switching to two separate doctors for each injury, I was taken off work cause employer could not accommodate modified duty for more than 90 days.
Three more months of therapies done. Last few weeks of therapies has made my pain worse.

After receiving copies of reports, I realized the docs were not documenting my complaints and falsifying physical exams. I made sure to have a witness with me during exams.. Several times my support person was told she/he could not be in the room while I was being examined.

Why would I stay with docs for two months knowing there was a pattern of this behavior? I told my atty and was waiting for him to file docs to rescue me from the jaws of death.Wink so I could be removed from the network....Patiently waiting.

Re: PS ...One Dr recently wanted to write a PS report....this happens to be the claim I am not receiving TTD for. Informed Dr. I wanted to switch physicians and the reason why. Dr gave me 3 more weeks off until I could find a Dr. And transfer care.

I complained to adjustor abt doctors . Adjuster tells me he spoke with the doctors boss and the PS report will be written this month on one claim and at 6 months its time for a PS report.

FYI..Adjuster says I don't have an atty. And suggested a QME... He also says once PS is written, TTD will stop. Only I don't think he realizes that I am not being paid TTD on this specific claim .

Thanks for hearing me out.

Can doctors write a PS report without me present? Can they stop TTD on the claim I'm not being paid on? In the meantime, I asked adjuster to send me a regional list of providers. States that doctor will write PS anyway, even if I switch providers....
