I was waiting for HMO insurance authorizations for a colonoscopy and endoscopy before i could see the bariatric surgeon to repair my hernia. With HMO this is a lengthy process. I was NOT hoping for the WC carrier to fix it. In the meantime I was told by my dr. I could still work, but then I injured my back.
But I need to know if my hernia is hindering my recovery from my back strain if they are liable to pay for treatment and recovery for the hernia repair, and my pay, so that I can get the treatment I need for my back to get back to full-duty as soon as possible.
