need advice Calif
#3


here's some suggestions that can start a discussion between you:

settle your claim; have them buy out their future medical liability.
relocate; negotiate moving expenses with the carrier.
the general objection to treating comp patients is the low fees; have the carrier negotiate a higher fee for a closer doctor.
or alternate visits between different doctors.

medical coverage in rural areas has always been a problem. advances in technology often allow specialist in urbans areas to consult online.
it does depend on the type of treatment needed as to whether it's practical in your case.



I haven' discussed options with WC yet..
I'm afraid to settle medical because I'm not sure of the finale cost of treatment. I have lived in this house 35 years and raised my kids here. I don't want to move 4 hours away from my family. The IC contacted locale Dr's with 0 results. The locale Dr's I contacted flatly refused to work with WC. I don't think it's fair to ask me to move and I don't think it is fair to ask IC to pay outrageous travel.. Just looking for something fair. All ideas are appreciated. Thank you
