    Question Primary Doctor, Rehab / Physical Medicine Doctor?

    Every time I go to a new rehab/physical medicine Doctor, they ask me who is my primary Doctor. I use the rehab Doctor as my primary Doctor for my Spinal cord injury & my insurance co. I use the rehab doctor as a means to get prescriptions that I need related to my injury. I use my other non insurance Doctor for anything not related to SCI. Am I doing this wrong? Should I use my primary everything Doctor as my main insurance Doctor? I know in the past the insurance co. would get out of paying if it wasn't related to my injury.

    I am in the VA SCI clinic and they do everything for me now.

    Use the doctor the insurance is paying. You don't what to be responsible for that bill.
