The insurance company wants you to believe that they have assigned a nurse to your case to “help” you get the medical treatment and benefits that you are entitled to. Nothing could be further from the truth.
First, you have the right to notify the insurance company that you do not want the nurse case manager to contact you or chaperone you to your doctor appointments. In fact, one of the first orders of business when we are retained by a client is to notify the insurance company that we do not allow nurse case manager involvement with our clients.
Make no mistake, the only reason an insurance company would pay a nurse to “help” you with your doctor appointments is if it was saving them money. Do not let the insurance company trample your legal rights.
