Don't be denied the Medical Benefits you deserve!

An employee who suffers a work related injury is to receive medical treatment without cost under the Workers’ Compensation Act.

 

After the passage of 90 days an injured employee is free to obtain a medical doctor other than those posted by the employer.  You should seek medical providers other than the employer’s doctor after the passage of 90 days.  An employee’s private physician will usually fight for the injured employee while the posted employer’s physicians are likely to take the side of the employer against the employee.

When medical payments are made on a work injury, a medical provider cannot bill the employee for any additional sums for the services provided.  If a Workers’ Compensation Claim is not accepted, medical bills will not be paid. When a claim is denied the employee’s major medical carrier should pay the bills until the case is litigated.
