If you need medical/prescription drugs in the future, you need to look at a WCMSA (Workers Compensation Medicare set aside) or open medical.

If anyone tries to close a WC Case without any future medical, Fines could be levied against Attorney's and possibly you. Medicare does not/ will not pay for your work related injury, Most GHP(Group Health Plans) will not pay for your injury. They expect WC IC to foot this bill.

Where are you at medically and what is your future medical needs? What does your latest IME SAY? Just because your employer cannot find a job for your restrictions does not mean you are free to continue to draw TTD.
Good Luck

I just went for my FCE first of june. They had to stop the test cause of the pain. I will need to take meds. For the rest of my life. They are looking to do a MMI. Does this mean that I will have to take the settlement, I can't continue the payments. I max out because it is only 50% of my bring home pay.

Have you actually seen the results of the FCE? Just wondering what they said when you could not continue. If I were you, I would get a copy of that report. Some put little into a FCE outcome but.....

MMI is Maximum Medical Improvement. IF they are looking at putting you at MMI, I would say they would be looking to settle and/or for you to find employment within your Restrictions.

Yes, A Judge could force you to take a settlement if it is in the interest of both parties. If you are MMI, things will start rolling pretty quick because the IC wants to get you off there books.

Maybe Vocational Rehab is in your future. What STATE YOU RESIDE IN is a big factor in all this.

NOW I was found MMI in early 2009. We met in early 2009 and agreed on a C&R Settlement with a Cash Indemnity and a MSA. The settlement was Contingent on the MSA being approved by ALL parties before it was sent to CMS for approval. Guess what? The MSA still is in Limbo but in the hands of CMS since Feb. 2011 meaning I have yet to settle. I still receive my checks and my medical is paid for....
