Denials Shouldn't Disrupt Your Workers Comp Prescription Care

Workers' compensation, or “the grand bargain”, has been an insurance staple in the United States for over one hundred years. Through this agreement, employees receive wage replacement and medical benefits for their work injury and release the right to sue their employer for damages.

When a workers' compensation claim is accepted by the employer, all reasonable and necessary care should be covered for the injury or illness. This includes medications, physical therapy, DME products and doctors office visits. There are, however, many reports and studies that show injured workers often face disputes and denials instead of receiving the treatment they need. What was once “the grande bargain” has now become a pain point for many injured workers instead of a remedy for return to work.
