I am awaiting confirmation from Wyndham Worldwide Human Resources reqarding my request for accommodation for leave to be extended through December 1, 2015 while I attend the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program, with intent to be ready to return to work in some capacity on or before December 1, 2015.
May I suggest that the prior neuro-psych evaluations that have been ignored by Grancell be sumitted for evaluation by a third party with brain injury expertise such as Bruce Leckart or Dr. Diane Roberts Stoler, Ed.D, LLC a neuropychologist, expert witness, author, and TBI survivor. Both parties apparently have experirence dealing with insurance carriers and both, I believe, require retainers, since CNA is not reliable when it comes to keeping commitments to pay, at least in my case.
I am not happy at the audacity to request yet another neuro-psych report to interrupt my time at Coastline, and the Court hearing will be addressed. It’s quite evil to expect me to miss time from Coastline Acquired Brain Injury program to support the Grancell determination to churn this file and create more billable hours, while causing continuous harm to me, seemingly, without consquences to them. Three years out of work, temp total disability benfits terminated May 8, 2014, authorized treatment nowhere close to ACOEM/MTUS guidelines for clearly diagnosed head injuries,…..
Because of the CNA pattern of continuous harm and failures to provide medically necessary treatments and reimbursements for self-procured life-saving medical care, I have also asked repeatedly that Wyndham conduct an immediate an comprehensive audit of not only my case, but all work comp cases involving failures to return to work for over 90 days over the past 5 years. It is my hope that CNA will be absolved of wrong doing and culpable parties at Grancell will be held accountable. If it turns out the CNA is complicit, so be it, and so may indictments run wild.
I hope that the CorVel investigations in Forth Worth spill into California. I have offered my records and support to the Law Enforcement community. I have, as you may know, friviolous and dubious non-recommendations dating back to February 2013. Daniel Elliott and Kim Mall orchestrated all prior failures to provide medical care, repeatedly requested by all doctors I was sent to, without even full reimbursements of medical miles and other expenses.
I received, yesterday, an urgent, respond in 72 hours request from CorVel for additional information, dated 2/4/15. It further violates my ADA requests for electronic communications, of which Stewart Reubens of Grancell and Elena Vega of CorVel have been repeatedly apprised of. I will file another EEOC complaint to include Elena and Stewart.
Be that as it is, if I am reading the current “Modification Recommendation” correctly, CNA continues to deny the treatment offered at Coastline Community College, world reknown, and for people who have received substantial medically necessary, or who, like me, were egregiously denied medical care by a work comp or other insurance provider. Compensatory Strategies are all the hope left available to me, as I have been criminally cheated out of medically necessary treatments since date of injury. Coastline Community College ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM is a 1-2 year program, at a cost of approximately $700/year, plus lodging. What bad faith to continue to deny and continue to cause me serious harm.
Furthermore, it appears that you will be authorizing the annual neuro-optometry evaluation and adjustments, as necessary. Dr. Lynn Lowell was the doctor whose report is most recent. Of course, Stewart refuses to reimburse for that medically necessary cost, as evidenced by all doctors except the 3 insurance company doctors, and the Corvel doctors. WILL YOU BE MAKING AN APPOINTMENT FOR ME WITH DR. LYNN LOWELL OF KETCHUM EYE UNIVERSITY, or will be sending me back to Dr. Eric Ikeda at the Casa Colina Brain Injury Center? Please advise.
Is there still a dispute as to the location of the brain by CorVel’s Dr. Nudelman, further delaying the bilateral hearing aids, necessary due to the cognitive deficits? A child knows that the brain is located in the head. Will you be making an appointment with the SCRIPPS audiology department for the hearing devices and training program that goes with them for the brain injured patient, as clearly outlined in the evaluations?
Apparently, the Neurological consultation requested repeateadly by Dr. Bergey and Dr. Chalgjujian and Dr. Young, for further review and EEG evaluation with “clinical correlation” is still advised. Has CNA found any neurologists with TBI expertise? Daniel never did, nor have you. I have provided you with the IME Neurology with further recommendations. Perhaps you will make an appointment for me with Dr. Michael Lobatz of SCRIPPS- ENCINITAS, a world reknowned doctor and TBI expert, or one of his colleagues.
ANY APPOINTMENTS MUST BE MADE LATE THURSDAY AFTERNOON NEAR NEWPORT BEACH through at least June, or anywhere, preferably close to home, on Friday’s.
I received a notice yesterday from the Court regarding Kim Malll’s petition for another neuro-pscyho, and I will address this soon enough. Bear in mind, CNA has ignored reports and requests for medically necessary treatment since date of injury from the following doctors over the course:
January 2012 Dr. Daniel DeGoede, Clinical Pscyhologist
February 2012 Dr. Eileen Kang, Neuro-Psychologist
April 2012 Dr. Marcel Ponton, Neuro-Psychologist and his Collagues Dr. Gunn and Dr. Chang
April 2014 Dr. HIlda Chalgujian, Neuro-Psychologist
As you know, industry neurologists Dr. Kent and Dr. Zardouz are not knowlegeable about traumatic brain injury, and were grossly mislead by communications and omission of medical records repeatedly by Ms. Mall, as Dr. O’Brien is another set of circumstances all together, also implicating Ms. Mall in the egregious errors in reporting, also the very evident use of 2012 records of the aforementioned doctors, and others, to falsely suggest preexisting issues
Further reports by Scripps Brain Injury Rehabilitation program, speech therapists and neuro-optometrists and neureologists and orthopedic surgeons have also been ignored, with clear intent and success to cause egregious harm to me.
Appeals to Corvel follow, within the ten day time frame.
So, let me know what’s next. Do what you have to do. So will I. I asked that Stewart stop bothering me so that I can focus on Coastline’s programs, so I can have a shot at regaining my life. He couldn’t even do that. FINE.
AGAIN, FOR THE RECORD, AS AN ADA ACCOMMODATION, I PREFER ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION, FOLLOWED AS NECESSARY, WITH PRINTED COMMUNICATIONS, PARTICULARLY TIME SENSITIVE MATTERS, AS I AM AWAY FROM HOME, OBTAINING TREATMENT THAT CNA REFUSED TO PROVIDE.
