Sounds like you have a nurse case manager, PLEASE do not begin to trust these people at any point, they are hired to work against you and limit your rights under the Act (and to save the insurance company money). If that is the case, you can withdraw any consent you may have provided to have them there and make clear to them that you do not want them communicating with your doctor about your medical conditions, sitting in your appointments or in anyway discussing or acquiring your private health information. It sounds like you have a real injury as well or they might not have hired the person – be sure you get an accurate diagnosis in these circumstances and do not lose important protections early in the claim. And, yes, it is always better to get an attorney, too many people blow up there case early on or do not even realize they are losing rights or not being treating properly. Good luck with the case.
