No appeal-------- Check arrived today - capricorn - 07-19-2007 02:03 PM
Hi all....I rec'd my backpay today from the IC so there will be no appeal. I don't think it has sunk in yet. I know I have a long hard recuperation ahead of me and it probably will never be full. My spine specialist feels he can give me some good quality of life but that it could take years. My neck will have to be watched closely for the rest of my life. I will probably be scheduled for an IME soon since I haven't seen one since last July. Not sure if it's the same in al state's but in mine the IC can schedule one every 6 months. My employers policy is to pay the benefits of all IW. Some have been on WC for 5 years before settling. My attorney told me to send them a letter requesting that they reimburse me ffrom November 1st when I started paying my own and for them to start paying them for me. I have not been terminated but feel when they get this letter I will be so they don't have to pay for them. It scares me as then Hubby and I won't have any health insurance. Not sure what I'll do or when I 'll send the letter. Want to talk to my attorney again to make sure I have it right and being as it is their policy to pay, they should pay mine also since I am no longer on unpaid leave. OMG, I can't catch my breathe.
God bless and keep you all safe. You saved my life.

Way to go girl! Didn't I tell you that you would make it over that bump in the road and sometimes you have to give it up to a higher power. That's what I did and it worked not only for me but you also.
I know you were stressed out and also down in the dumps. I fought through many hurdles and became in a bad mental condition that I am still in treatment for but handeling things muchhhhhhh better. Like my psych doc said......we cannot allow WC to control our lives, we have to fight and we have to take control of it ourselves. I have done that and believe it or not.......it works.
I am so very happy for you (doing the "HAPPY DANCE") for you.....singing....hip hip hoorayyyyyyyyyyyyy. Congratulations to you are very much in order. Take care and God Bless you.....I think he already has regarding this battle.
Congratulations Cajun Hugssssssssssssss,

Cap...I think I have already done the HAPPY DANCE once this week for you....are you tring to kill me.....lol......As Spring sit here with a big ole SMILE on her face. I am just thrilled for you. So instead of doing the happy dance...I will just roll around in my computer chair pretending to due the happy dance. Cap that is just so awesome for you...We all know you most likely are in need of that money. So that will take a huge relief off your shoulders.
Does it just seem so silly that you had to go through all the game playing....that stuipd IC knew very well they owed you that money...but the just want to put the Injuried person through hell. This is the stuff I am taking to my Govenor. So would you mind just writing a short story of all what you have been through. You don't have to use your real name or anything like that. In fact I am going to start a /thread tommorow asking everyone to help me with this. I had to take some medications...so I am not thinking to clearly.
The good thing is you got the money...to bad they didn't have to pay late charges and interest. If they had to pay things like that maybe things like what you had to go through wouldn't happen.
The Good Lord above look down and said this poor lady has had enough....and make sure that check was in that mail box.

Congrats Cap! You deserve all the best!
RE: No appeal-------- Check arrived today - capricorn - 07-20-2007 07:04 AM
Tweety,ksgirl,rholmes and babe......thank you all so much. It does happen, hard to believe at times but it does.
Sweet Tooth........ I know, I know. I should practice what I preach?
Pooh..... I was so glad we had the conversation yesterday. it really cleared my head. You're right. They had nothing and knew it. I never expected to get a check less than a week after the Judge's decision. I know I pissed 2 people off badly. My supervisor and the Adjuster is a witch. She is the same one I dealt with through the other 4 injuries. They were all accepted and paid but her and I butted heads many a day.
MJC.....after all we have been through why can't we remain calm when something happens??? We know it's all a game with them, we know getting stressed out doesn't help in any way especially our health but we ( I know I do) get crazy with every change. I have an appt. with my counselor on the 1st and am still going to keep it because this isn't over yet and I need to keep the stress level down to recover. when I am stressed out all of the pain is worse. All Dr.s and my employer know I can never do my job again so God only knows what they'll do next. Funny you mention the Lord. Within 2 hours after getting the check I felt like a train hit me. Got in a nice warm tub, full of bubbles and cried like I haven't cried in years. I thanked God immediately, apologized for ever doubting he was with me and asked him to please do the same for all of you. Then I called my oldest daughter who needs a driveway badly and told her someone would be there next week to do it and I was paying for it. My husband just looked at me and smiled and said "you'll never change, thank God"
Spring......Happy dance in the chair sounds great. Thank you. They did have to pay interest. at the rate of 10% on all backpay. and that just about covered my attorney's fee. They also have to pay all other costs. You're right. God looked down and said "she can't take anymore, get that check in the mail so one issue is over for her" . Whenever you are ready, everyone knows I love to type I would be happy to share my story with you. When a claim is denied and an IW goes through this hell there is always a reason. Most of the time it's BS. That's what i find so unfair. IF there is true reason to doubt an IW, try talking to them. My employor had no reason and never contacted me to even check it out. He assumed after 4 legitimate comp claims that were all accepted that all of a sudden after 20 years I turned into a liar and milker of the system.
Love and Prayers to all,
