“We’ll Take Care of It”



“I discussed the case with the claims examiner and it looks like the pain management doctor cut off the medication.  It appears the UDT revealed that the patient was using marijuana in violation of her pain contract.  Because of this, the Dr. stopped prescribing medications.

So, yes, please close the file. I think this is a great result of the UDT testing!”
