your participation is optional.

All employers, insurers, injured or disabled workers and their legal representatives are
required to cooperate with the contractor with respect to all reasonable requests for
information necessary for case management purposes. The contractor shall report any refusal
to cooperate to the Director.
Any dispute concerning the reasonableness of any request for information may be submitted,
in writing, to the Director. The determinations of the Director concerning the reasonableness
of such requests are final. The Director shall consult with the medical Director in making
such determinations.

I don't see where it says anything on the link about being optional. I just see where I am required to cooperate with her.

you are reading it incorrectly.

it states you have to cooperate with requests for information.

It shall be the responsibility of every employer, either directly or through its insurer or third party administrator, to give basic information to and encourage the injured worker's participation in case management.

Oh, ok. I see now.

And thank you.
I wonder why I am getting this attention at this point? Injury date was June 19 and the first ortho doc kept saying it's "just a sprain".

Great explanation, Jayne! LOL I'll keep that in mind.

I figure I'll let her come into the first appt and see how she acts. But the minute she starts trying to take control or tell my doc what to do, I'm gonna remind her I know how she makes her money and gets her big bonuses, and show her the door.
