Hi,I am asking this on behalf of my girlfriend who hurt her back at work in dec. 07. Well workmans comp. has dragged its feet so long thatthis is where things stand. After 3 facet injections, they said they would do medial branch blocks until the day before the procedure, they denied it. Said it may take 5 to 8 wks before they say yay or nay. My question is will her insurance through work cover any claims on her back. shr said that they probably would not, because they said it is preexisting. how can it be preexisting when she didn't have this problem when she started with the company. Is it lawyer time to try and speed up the process? thanks so much for reading this. hope somone can advise!!
