If your case is an “accepted” workers’ compensation claim, it is one in which the employer and insurance carrier have agreed to provide workers’ compensation benefits to you as the injured worker. These benefits include compensation for time spent out of work and for the medical treatment deemed necessary as a result of the injury.
The insurance company will determine the provider of the medical treatment in accepted workers’ comp cases. The insurance carrier has the authority to choose the medical facilities and doctor, and will determine whether to authorize or cover the tests or treatment recommended by the doctors. This stresses the importance of contacting our office immediately to assist with your worker's compensation claim.
