There is a misconception in workers’ compensation cases that the insurance company can dictate what treatment you require. For example, if the attending physician (the doctor the insurance company selects) recommends 12 sessions of therapy, the adjuster legally cannot arbitrarily decide that you only need 6 sessions.
The doctor, the insurance company selects, is the boss. Any treatment he/she recommends must be provided by the insurance company. Please let us know if we can help you with such an issue. We are seeing adjuster’s act as doctors in more and more cases wherein they are making the decision themselves that the doctor is ordering too much medical care.
