The DOL requires medical narratives not just doctors notes from doctors in order to justify their diagnosis and treatment plans. These narratives are also required to provide the injured any compensation for missed work days on doctors orders. Nation wide there are doctors taking on injured workers and producing medical ‘notes’ taking compensation from the DOL while stringing along the injured worker without ever producing a medical narrative. OWCP and company insurance carriers use this loophole in the system to deny injured workers any compensation or treatment beyond visiting one of these scam doctors which are usually pain specialists. This petition is a call to the DOL and legislatures to have doctors agree to produce medical narratives as requested by the DOL/OWCP and other insurance carriers before taking on any American injured on the job. This racket needs to end now. Please contact Senator Duckworth and encourage her to live up to her promise to help injured Americans. The loop hole that allows these doctors that target injured workers without having to actually produce medical narratives produces undue hardship on the injured and clogs the claims examiners work load. DOL should also work with the OIG to pull out Nurse ‘Case Workers’ that lead the injured directly to their network of these ‘medical notes’ producing doctors.
