Transfer of Care (California)

PostPosted: Tue Jul 14, 2009 10:56 am
IW has an established relationship with treating psychologist. In March (2007) IW was advised to be evaluated and treated in the MPN along orthopedic lines. Currently defense argues time frame should also apply to psych though there is an absence of specific correspondence along these lines. My question is does transfer of care apply to a psych relationship where an abrupt change could be harmful undoing? Also, would the 1 year 'grace' period apply (L.C. 9767.9(2);L.C. 4616.2B) or is all this irrelevant due to absence of specific notification?
Thank you.
