here is a chance to eliminate UR or make it independent of the Ins Company so that appropriate care can be given to the IW per LC 4600 and UR does not have a financial obligation to the ins company and deny all treatment as the UR gets paid directly by the ins company and thus has a vested interest.

Agree with the comments by SSK. Why cant the UR doctors be any independent group of physicians appointed by the DWC. Their identities can be concealed just like the IMR doctors. In that manner the insurance carriers will not have undue influence over the doctors which are on the UR panel. Wouldn't that be much fairer to the injured worker ?
