I believe that my husband had to deal with a case nurse the 3 months while I was down at Mayo in the hospital. I think that they are hired by the insurance companies to make sure that all of the medical procedures being done are valid for the disease. Because I was in such bad shape, nothing was ever questioned in my case. But I would certainly not let a case nurse dictate that I need a surgery that I may not need at all (carpal tunnel.) Also, her statement about neurontin & driving is ludicrous, just consider the source.
