Out of State Worker's Comp can't find doctor
#1
Sad 
I lived in New York were I was injured. I left New York because, with no job, it was too expensive to survive there and we left and moved to Greensboro, NC to be with family. I'm now looking for a doctor here in NC to treat me, but not one doctor I've called will take an our of state comp case for insurance. I'm at a loss of what to do and in excruciating pain. Any advice on what to do? [/size][/font]

it's up to the employer/carrier to provide treatment.
without knowing the reasons for the physician refusals it's difficult to offer solutions.
I'd contact the carrier and have them locate a doctor.

All I can say is good luck with that.  If the carrier/Employer are fighting the case...you will get no help from there.  After fighting tooth and nail to get them to approve a doctor..we had to practically beg to get a physician in NC to see my husband.  They dont want to mess with trying to get payment on treatment from carriers that just dont want to pay - so I definately understand where the physicians office is coming from).  We FINALLY got one in Greensboro for shoulder issues but now we are searching for a wrist/hand specialist - so anyone that has a suggestion on this would be appreciated.  The fun never stops.

On Often the problem is the out-of-state fee is to low. Generally if the carrier can't provide a doctor near you, you can obtain treatment with a doc Of your choice and they can charge their usual &customary fee.
This is a 5 yr Old post that should stay dead.
