The law states the claimant has lifetime coverage..but insurers normally do not volunteer such coverage..one should go back to same doctors if possible..and call insurer asap..and if problems, call DWC 1 800 252 7031...unfortunately the law and our good Republican legislators and Courts do not let a claimant pay a lawyer for help in obtaining medical benefits. good luck
