I will try to be breif... I am covered under Indiana WC. My injuries are Inpingment of my shoulder and Myofascial Pain that is spreading to by back, arms, legs, neck and I have a constant headach.
This all started 6 months ago. I got hurt on the job. It took over 5 weeks for the WC Ins. Carrier to accept my claim. They sent me to "Their" doctor. I saw him for about 2 mths, while seeing him I was in PT for the first month then PT and Deep tissue message for the second month. He then released me temporaraly for 2 weeks (NOT MMI) but so we could see how bad my shoulder got. When I was to go back to work my company FIRED ME without letting me return to work. I was getting worse day by day so I returned to the Doctor. When I saw him he refered me to a shoulder specialist/suregon and a chiropractor. This is where the trouble started..
The WC Ins. Carrier informed me that they were NOT going to pay me and they wanted a second opinion. 9 weeks and STILL no second opinion. They FINALLY sent me a Termination of benifits letter 2 1/2 weeks later than allowed by State Board. I used the Termination papers to file for an IME. My IME was set for 6 weeks out. The WC Ins. Carrier was informed by the Indiana Board to send me TTD for 14 days and to pay for my travel in advance. That was 2 1/2 weeks ago. We have had NO income for 8-9 weeks and we are about to lose EVERYTHING. I can't even get my kids shoes or all of their school supplies. Somehow this Ins. carrier can "do no wrong" and isn't held accountable for anything they have OR haven't done. All of this while I sit at home with NO treatment or help for my conditions that are getting worse. I can't sleep, I am having Anxiety problems and I'm depressed. Everything I have worked for is going down the drain and no one can or will stop it!
