A Nurse Case Manager at My Doctor’s Appointment?

Nurse Case ManagerOftentimes, workers’ compensation insurance companies will hire a Nurse Case Manager (I use the abbreviation NCM) to attend an injured worker’s doctor’s appointments.  While some Nurse Case Managers will be kind and call the injured worker to let them know that they have been assigned to the case and will be attending their next doctor’s appointment, others will just show up to an appointment and surprise the injured worker.  If a Nurse Case Manager is assigned to monitor your care, there are some things you need to be aware of (like the fact that you have the right to a private examination!).
