I posted a topic a couple months ago about Workers Comp re-opening my settled claim and doing so by the testimony of a doctor who lied his butt off.
Yesterday was my hearing with the Judge and she ruled they have to continue providing me all my medications! The WC company and their medical reviewers were under the impression I was taking four muscle relaxers and four pain medications all at the same time. I'd love to know how much money was spent on legal fees and medical consultation reports which were used to get me into court again. The whole matter could have been solved with a five minute phone conversation.
The Plaintiff's attorney still wanted a finding in their behalf that they should not have to pay for meds I no longer take. The Judge flat out refused saying that I was a reasonable patient.
My guess is that they will try to re-negotiate my settlement and offer me a large settlement amount to buy me out. Currently, they are on the hook for my medical coverage for life regarding my back injury. There is no way I'll take a buy out.
At least I have peace of mind that for a while, they will still have to cover my medications without messing with me.
