Just had to share this… I received a call yesterday from the company that (supposedly) coordinates my physical therapy. They called to schedule my PT. I called them back and said, “I really don’t understand this call, I have been attending PT for a week.” So they check my file. I go over with them where I am going to PT, how they got it approved (neglected to mention that they never told me about the approval but perhaps this is the first time they figured it out), and when I started. I even told them that my nurse case manger knew all about it and it should be in my file. Then they say, “OK, I guess your adjuster didn’t know.”
I relay this story to my PT today. And she says, “They had to know, they are ones who approved it.” I had already figured this out, but hearing it from someone else just makes it all that much more amusing. There are too many people with their fingers in this pie, I am amazed that anything gets done. Think of all the money the company would save (and how much faster the process would be) if all this could be taken care of with just a doctor and one company handling the paperwork?
Now I have to go into work to see the company doctor because my personal doctor doesn’t want me working because of my right arm (well, both arms, but the right is the only one he’s allowed to treat), and the worker’s comp doctor says I don’t need any work restrictions, so I guess the company doctor will be the arbitrator of truth. I give up.
Ah well, there is good news. My blood pressure is lower. A bit too low now, but we will work that out. At least I’m not about to have a stroke.
