    You should not have a co-pay under WC. If you want to get a lawyer, you may legally do so. In fact, I would recommend it.

    I'm not a doctor and you have a case manager and a regular provider so I can't comment on your medical condition. Your treatment and prognosis is something you need to discuss with them. It is normal to have the appointments i nthe future approved by the carrier. It is not unlike getting treatment pre-approved from your regular insurance company.

    It may be too soon to discuss settling your case, and if you are currently in treatment and experiencing problems, it is probably not the best way to go. This is soemthing that really needs to be addressed by someone with all the facts in front of them though, not someone on a bulletin board.
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
