Fight The Insurance Company If They Refuse Your Right To Medical Care
One of the most important issues during your workers’ compensation claim is receiving the proper medical treatment.
For your first appointment, your employer is legally entitled to choose your medical provider. However, there are often other options available to you for your medical provider. Your employer is required to notify you of the medical provider network — a list of approved doctors that an injured worker can use to select a physician.
You can choose a new doctor to provide you with the reasonable and necessary medical care at the expense of the employer or its insurer. Sometimes, the opinion of your doctor regarding medical treatment, diagnostic testing, your return-to-work status and your disability status will be disputed by your employer or its insurer.
It is at these times that it is critical to proceed carefully through the workers’ compensation maze.
