I don't think you going to have much of a problem with this. I will tell you this; Go to the MRI place, as for a copy of the MRI and the writen report. Save it, then go and sign a release to any doctor or surgeon and ask for your medical records, chart notes, soap notes. Get copies, and then make atleast 4 copies of each for later use. You then can send them to your treating surgeon. Save copies always. Call your adjuster and talk to them, ask if they need the copies of this, and medical, if so, send them off. If you start having problems with the Insurance I then say get an Attorney to help you out.

Is this the State oh Ohio? Because OH - (c-84) is, Request for Temporary Total Compensation

I'm thinking Form > OH - (C-9) Physicians Request for Medical Service or Recommendation for Additional Conditions for Industrial Injury or Occupational Disease

is what you and your surgeon want.

C-84 form in Ohio is used to request Temp Total Disability
C-9 form in Ohio is a form the Dr uses to request treatment. new conditions to be added to a claim must first be sumbitted by a dr on a c-9 form for approval.

Actually, you can file it with the evidence yourself without your MD. My first MD just totally dropped the ball with everything that was found (1) during the scope of my knee and (2) the f/u MRI done 5 months later since I am still having problems with it AND my shoulder. The WC doc will either pull it together for you (like they did in my case) or rule against you and then you get your MD to submit it IF they will.

This is from any BWC certified physician, hence your (POR) physician of record, making a statement called (MOI) mechanism of injury. Doing exactly what the other post stated. Correlating the actual injury, the findings, the lack of pre-existing signs and symptoms, the current symptoms and the diagnosis to the date of injury and the claim number. This is all stated with a reasonable degree of medical certainty and probability and based on....."the facts" has directly and causality resulted in ...diagnosis of, that should be added to the claim#.

Keep the wording very simple sentences. Remember the hearing officer needs to make sense of this.

Lots of options here, chiropractic for example. Epidurals are not just a one stop shot. Several are used and since there are so many possibilities to cause lumbar pain, several attempts are necessary to allow for pain reduction. Even if temporary, then additional treatment is necessary to follow up, such as Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA). Often this is best to mix with chiropractic care to obtain the best results.
