THE COMPANY IS MAKING AN APPOINTMENT FOR ME TO SEE THEIR DOCTOR. WHAT CAN I DO?
If appointment is initial exam & it’s a GP (or if it’s in-house provider), the Company has a right to have exam, but if it’s with a specialist, tell Company you are entitled to choose from a panel and to please provide a panel. If GP wants to refer up to a specialist, tell Company then that you are entitled to choose and want a panel of three.
MY DOCTOR SAYS THAT THERE IS NOTHING ELSE HE/SHE CAN DO, BUT I STILL AM HAVING PROBLEMS. WHAT CAN I DO?
Go back to the company and tell them the specialist says there is nothing else he/she can do, and ask for another panel. Company will deny. Then seek treatment on own, which employer will have to pay for.
