    A Claims Adjusters, Pharmacists, Insurance Providers, and ESPECIALLY people like Jennifer Kaburick, Brigette Nelson, and Riddhi Trivedi-St. Clair are NOT doctors. They have NO BUSINESS inserting themselves into the treatment plan prescribed by a trained physician. This article is RIDICULOUS and the concept of forcing an injured worker to argue the merits of a prescription with a Pharmacist should be illegal. Injured workers are treated terribly and this is illogical idea is proof.

    Jennifer Kaburick (only a nurse and at the job 1 year), Brigette Nelson (Clinical Account Management – only 7 months on the job), and Riddhi Trivedi-St. Clair (Senior Manager, Social Media Strategy Lead and only on the job for 1 year 8 months) – you should all be ashamed of yourselves. None of you have the background or education to be involved in any of these decisions. More importantly, there are PEOPLE behind the dollars that seem to be the only motivation for your actions. PEOPLE. HURT PEOPLE and all you’re doing is trying to hurt them more. SHAME ON YOU ALL. Truly disgusting and sinister indeed.

    I just went to pharmacy and was told that workers comp no longer covers my Flector patches. I have finally found a good balance that doesn’t require me increasing my narcotics and was told that I can no longer get the patches which helped control inflammation in my periformis muscle and the nerve it is laying on. What really angers me is that the insurance companies lump everyone together and different modalities work for different people. I never received notice of this ahead of time and now I have to visit my Dr. after only a month to figure out what to do. I get painful stomach problems with oral anti inflammatories and the patches did not cause any upset and could be applied at the site. It’s all about money and in the meantime the patients suffer.
