maybe.
the case nurse is assigned at the carrier's discretion. you can file a complaint with her supervisor.
but it's your choice to have her talk to the doctor privately.
you can request mileage money for your medical appointments.
you can leave but it can be difficult to find out of state treatment.
you may have to return at your own expense for necessary court appearances.
you can find out more from the handbook here

How can I file a complain? It it with the case manager? She's pretty rude too! I toldy lawyer if they can pay me he said no only if I go to their doctor? Also when I leave for a few weeks I don't plan on finding treatment but continue with my medication would that be a problem?

First thing. Your case manager is not your friend, and it is your right to not allow her in during dr visits. You need to file a complaint with the ins company that hired her, which would be Zurich. Your case manager answers to a adjuster with zurich, that's where to start complaining. But all it would take is for your attorney to call them, he can stop that.

As far as leaving, If your not bound by any up coming appointments there is nothing they can do.

On two different occasions I was given a nurse case manager. Both times I called my lawyer and told him that I did not want this woman in m life. Both times after caling the attorney, and by the end of the day the nurse case mgr was out of my life. He called their company and put a stop to them, it was that easy. Tell your attorney to get them out of your life that is if you do not want to be bothered with them. Your attorney can take care of that for you.

If you don't have a good enough excuse wc can say your non compliant and shut you off. You need to talk to your attorney about this before doing it.

Ok thank you and one more issue that just happened I ask my attorney to get rid of the nurse case he said he talked to them but I'll still end up with her and they're just going to have her apologize for the comments she made but an apology isn't going fix the person she is nor will I tolerate seeing her face or even to speak to me what should I do? My atterony keep giving me the run around about that

if you can get enough evidence to convince a judge your claim is harmed by the nurse's actions you might be able to get another assigned but that's up to your atty as to whether they want to do it. generally the fees are not worth the extra work.
you'll need a doctor's opinion to support that the nurses actions have harmed you or your claim. can you get that?

To be honest the first 1 1/2 years of having my ncm helped me a lot. I did let her in on some of my dr visits just for the simple reason she wasn't doing it behind my back so I knew what was discussed.. Many of the dr appointments she came in later and recapped with me and the dr, this allowed me to talk freely with my dr if I had any concerns. She used to arrive 30 min early so she could sit next to us and fish for information.. We were wise from the start (thank you forum) but never give personal info to them, they use trickery and she will be writing it all down.. We got sick of her prying in to our lifes so we started showing up 5 min before appointment so she had no chance to see what I was going to talk about with the dr.. My attorney told me, unless she was trying to convince the dr's to treat me her way, he would allow her to be there.. He said let them waste the extra money..
