Moving out of state, now what?
#1
I am coming to the close of my work comp case after 5 years (but who knows, it could drag on for a couple more years). I plan on moving out of CA to Idaho. My work Comp case will give me life time medical for my back injury. I am having problems finding a Pain Management doctor who accepts California workers compensation claims. So now what? This would seem to be such a common occurrence that thee would be no problems.Cool[/font]

There are many problems that are common.
As long as each state has their own comp system there will be cross state problems.
You have to distinguish between doctors who won't treat California work comp patients and those who won't accept California work comp fees.
You can't require physicians to accept certain patients in their practice but you might get a fee issue solved.
Contact the employer carrier about their MPN rules--they have to have provisions for out of state coverage.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
THANKS FOR POSTING.
