Settlement Question. - freebird - 06-28-2011 07:04 PM
Does Louisiana allow a WC Case to be closed with open medical? I have tried "googling" to find out but I cannot find a answer.
Is open medical a option or do some states not allow this form of settlement?
The reason I ask is my settlement has been held up for over 2 years because the IC thinks the MSA is to high. We offered open medical as a option when they balked on the proposed MSA but they never would answer yes or no.After having 3 MSA's constructed by there company of choice, A MSA was sent to CMS but that was almost 6 months ago.
The IC is really quite content with continual weekly payments and all medical paid for going on 8 years. I am ready to get rid of this headache myself.

Perhaps you could call your state's Ombudsman and they might have an answer.
