If my employer schedule me for 8 hour shift on the day of my qme appointment I had requested for the time off but didn't get it?

Your question is a little unclear but the rule is that your WC insurance company will pay you temporary disability indemnity for the time required to be off work to attend the PQME appointment. If you could have taken a half day off then that's what they pay. If your employer required you to take a whole day off, then that's what they pay.
But, oh my, you didn't select a QME on your own without having any way of knowing if he was in the right medical specialty or if he was the best doctor on the list, did you?
