Nurse case managers -- whose side are they on? Not the injured worker's in most cases

We often see that when an injured worker's case begins to get complicated the insurance carrier typically contracts with a third-party company to assign a nurse case manager ("NCM") to the claim. The NCM says he or she is there to "help" you with the medical aspects of your claim, to schedule medical appointments, and to meet with your doctors. In reality, you should assume that the NCM is working for the insurance carrier.
