UNFORTUNATELY, YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE
Workers’ Compensation benefits are under attack. For this reason I expect many of you are frustrated and have questions about the “WC system.” Well, you are not the only one.
Below are links to various recorded interviews and investigations documenting the neglect of the Workers’ Compensation medical treatment system.
At the foundation of this neglect is the fact that the Workers’ Compensation insurance companies get to hire a biased medical professional to deny medical treatment benefits. There is no “good faith” requirement that the workers’ compensation insurance “act in good faith” in determining whether your treatment should be authorized or denied. The insurance company controls who they have review your treating physician’s medical treatment requests. As you would expect, the “reviewing doctor” is more concerned about a relationship with the insurance company than any concern for you, the injured worker.
I offer these links as evidence of the pervasive denials within the workers’ compensation medical treatment process.
If you have any difficulty in obtaining medical treatment for your Workers’ Compensation injuries, I recommend that you contact your State Legislator and ask them to change the law that gives the insurance company full control of the medical treatment you require to recover from your industrial injuries.
