Newbie to forum - Chronic Pain - C&R
if your health insurance doctor is in the carrier's Medical Provider Network, they can submit their billings and reports and treatment recommendations directly to the carrier. workers comp will review them for compliance with utilization review guidelines and either approve them or not. there is an appeal process for your physician.
if you are eligible-- or will be shortly-- for medicare CMS will require a set-aside account and will have to approve the future medical component.

settlement is difficult when you choose represent yourself and you are not experienced.

to cost out medical treatment you should review the carriers paid costs. request an itemized payment record from the carrier. this will give you some idea of the costs of various treatments in your area.
then you will have to have a discussion with your doctor as to types of treatment and frequency.
you can also pay to have a health professional prepare a life care plan.
you can find such service with any internet search.

........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
