My hernia is getting unbearable and the case manager (nurse) would not contact the insurance company to see if they decided to send me to a general surgeon. I have decided to use my insurance and get help. Can they treat me me for a work comp issue then decide it is not a work comp issue? I am DONE....my attorney can figure it out. I am sick.

If your having that much pain and you feel your in need of medical attention, I would go to the hospital or urgent care facility. What you are describing about your body parts is serious. It can cause permanent issues if you wait. Insurance or no insurance, if my husband was in your condition, he would be going ASAP to the ER.
WC or no WC, if you feel you are in need of immediate assessment, you need to be seen. Hernias are nothing to be fooled around with. It's a protrusion through the muscle that can lead to tissue death and a lot more complications.
And yes, as Manley2 states, make sure you tell them that it is related to WC. If you go to a public hospital,they can't turn you away. It's illegal. They have to treat you.
Went to ER today and they said all they could do was try to manage pain. Very knowledgeable nurse, however the doc was an ER doc and really did not know what to do after he read my MRI and Dr's notes from Wed. He said that it was not a life threatening hernia as I was not throwing up. He felt the testicle/groin pain was related to my back He said he did not want to get in the middle of the insurance company and the doctors....I feel the practicing doctors on ER rotation passed due to WC. He said to se my GP and gave me meds (I do no do them) At least it appears not to be a bad hernia? I plan to stay down through Monday, at least that helps if I do not move. I am going to meet with my lawyer to get me out of talking to the insurance company and the nurse if Iowa law permits...
