The insurance company can assign a “nurse case manager” or a “rehabilitation nurse” to be a go-between with you, the doctor, and the adjuster. In theory this is fine. However, many, if not most, of these nurses work almost exclusively for the insurance companies. In fact some of them work in cubicles right next to the adjuster. In that kind of situation it’s hard not to believe that the nurse is going to put your interests ahead of those of her employer. We aren’t saying all nurses are bad people – they aren’t. But human nature is… well, human nature. We’ve seen documented cases of nurses altering Functional Capacities results, turning a blind eye to known inaccuracies in job descriptions, even coordinating schedules with private investigators.
