Here’s the deal on #WorkComp and “Memory” and “Dementia” and “Brain Injury” ETC. It’s sheer corruption! It’s too brutal to be simply stupidity. IE:

Diagnosis: 854 Closed head injury, 784 Headaches, 310.2 Post concussive syndrome, 850.1 Concussion with brief loss of consciousness, 850.9 Head Concussion, 309.81 PTSD, 310.2 Post concussive syndrome, 780.93 Closed Head Injury with amnesia, 921.00 Contusion (left orbit), 750.90 Concussion, 959.01 Head Trauma, 959.01 Cognitive Changes following head trauma, 850.0 Concussion, 959.00 Head Trauma (Contusion x 2) with Impaired Memory, Speech, Balance and Vision, 850-854, 959.01 Somatic/cognitive dysfunction and emotional dysfunction, 310, 310.8, 438 Mild cognitive dysfunction, memory processing,, 850 Mild TBI positive lapse of consciousness, 310.20 Post Concussive syndrome, 309.28 Mood Disorder secondary to Post Concussive Syndrome, 959.01 Head injury, Lobe Disorders: frontal, parietal, cerebellar dysfunction, motor dysfunction, segmental dysfunctions, Closed Head Injury with Ongoing Sequelae, Psychological sequelae, possibly secondary to industrial injury, 959.01 Closed head injury with cognitive dysfunction and speech dysfunction, 784.00 post traumatic headaches, brain based vision impairments, brain-based vestibular and balance disorders + secondary to head trauma, NECK, BACK, Shoulder PAIN and related ICD-9 codes (first 2 years)

BRAIN WORK

If there really is an unwritten rule, as attested to in the InjuredWorker communities, that Carriers immediately terminate all benefits and launch guerrilla type financial terrorism upon diagnosis of brain injury, that can easily lead to ‘legal opinions’ by defense counsel that because WorkComp systems appear too complex for an injured worker, Court Appointed Conservatorship may be in order (to complete the kill?)

Immediate medical care is required for traumatic brain injury, closed head injury, concussion. MTUS recommends interdisciplinary teamwork, as does ACOEM and NIH. Ask any 7th grade kid about the brain and neuro-science!

Not #WorkComp!

Their doctors get the big bucks to recommend things like over the counter analgesics, not more than 17 chiropractic sessions first year, not more than 6 physical therapy second year, then, with Court order, a little acupuncture, rest and wait and wait and wait.

Wanna talk about increased risk exposure for dementia and premature death and epilepsy and the deal football players are getting diagnosed with?

WC DOCTORS

Throw in WorkComp doctors who are paid to change dates of injury to use earlier diagnostic reports to substantiate ‘pre-existing’ conditions (i.e. move date of injury to 2013, use 2012 records to substantiate head injury by multiple doctors)….. and…have doctors to say things like “if there was a concussion, of course medical treatment would be necessary, but there was no concussion, no brain injury, and it was probably epilepsy” would be funny if it was not so darned criminally insane, huh? Or at least ‘fraudulently felonious”.

wc CLAIM DENIED

When teams of doctors with QME/AME designations consort in such a manner at the promptings/leadings of defense counsel, there’s a breakdown, huh?
