Texas: Nobody takes out-of-state Workers Comp Insurance. HELP!!!
#1
Recently moved to Texas from another state, where I was receiving treatment for a work injury. No issues at all, they paid for all my treatment.  When I told my WCI I was moving to another state they said "no worries, just find a doctor and we'll continue paying."

Well.....50 phone calls later (not joking, 50), I haven't found one neurologist in Texas that will accept out-of-state workers compensation insurance. Not one. I have an active claim, and my WCI is 100% willing to pay for everything. Just can't find anybody to take my money.

Any suggestions???

I've expanded my search range to a three hour drive from my city. I've called neurologists everywhere from Abilene to Waco to Austin to Dallas. With no luck.

I'm at a bit of a loss of what to do.

contact your local medical board.
contact TDI

or try their website

it would help if you knew why the refusal. if it's not the fee and the doctor know they can bill usual & customary, is it reporting requirements?

I also moved to TX from another state. I pay out of pocket and send super bill and proof of payment to the WC carrier.... Then I am reimbursed. It's not factor easy, but.....

I agree.
Most of the time it's a fee issue and workers don,t realize that the carrier,s duty to provide care supersedes the use of a fee schedule. Therefor the doc can charge U &C for out of state treatment and has a legal right to expect payment.
The carrier won,t win that fight in comp court.
