The workers' compensation insurance company has an obligation to pay only medical bills for treatment related to the work injury. The bills are supposed to be submitted to the insurance company on appropriate billing forms with an attached medical report form. This form should clearly identify the nature of the treatment and confirm that the treatment was rendered in connection with a work-related injury. In this article, we provide all the information and forms your doctors need to get paid quickly.
If you receive notice from your medical provider that bills have not been paid by the workers' compensation insurance company, make sure the bills have been submitted properly. If the bills are being denied, ask the reason why the bills are being denied. If necessary, request a written denial so that the bills can be submitted to your insurance carrier.
