My elected State House Representative co-sponsored a Bill this session (HB 2) that would kick people off Workers Comp benefits after 750 weeks regardless of injury status. Additionally, it allows the Official Disability Guidelines (ODG) to become controlling documentation regarding "approved procedures". Keep in mind the ODG is written by a For Profit company that is intended to rush injured workers back to work instead of relying on the treating physicians opinion.
I sent him a pretty heated e-mail last night and started a "FB" page regarding the legislation. I got the first return e-mail back this morning. He was not understanding my frustration regarding the Bill. I then sent him another reply laying it all out. He replied back and apologized for not knowing the ramifications nor how negative the "re-opening" procedures for a WC claim are in KY. He is contacting Senators and asking them to either amend or kill the Bill because of our conversation. He has also agreed to meet with me so I can show him actual documentation of the "Re-opening" process and how dishonest it is!
It may not sound like much but this is something that typically does not happen in KY politics!
