Get The Medical Treatment You Deserve
Even after you have filed a workers’ compensation claim with your employer, you may encounter obstacles that will stand between you and the medical care you need. Most often, this will take the form of an insurer denying your doctor’s request for a particular medical treatment. Different doctors have different opinions on appropriate care, after all, and your insurance company has built-in incentives to pay for less treatment if they can justify it.
Alternatively, a medical treatment request may be granted, but your insurer could delay weeks or months before providing funds for it.
Your doctor could recommend anything from physical therapy to surgery to medication — in every case, your insurer has the power to deny the request.
The workers’ compensation attorneys at the Law Offices of Lester Friedman work hard to hold your employer and your insurer accountable. When appropriate, we will present the case that a recommended procedure is medically necessary, so that your insurer will be compelled to cover it. We will direct you to medical service providers and help you establish the documentation you need to be successful.
Fortunately, this process can move quickly. Generally speaking, the insurance company has five days to approve, deny, or modify a treatment request.
