Alabama Workers' Compensation Attorneys Utilization Review

Alabama Workers' Compensation Attorneys Utilization Review

Alabama Workers' Compensation Attorneys-Utilization Review: We have written a few posts in the past on utilization review, and how it has been misused and abused by workers compensation insurance carriers in an attempt to save them money at the expense of the health and well-being of the injured worker and their family.

Make no mistake, the well-being of the injured worker is never a consideration made by the workers compensation carrier when they decide to second guess the recommendation made by their doctor (remember, the physicians you are forced to see have been picked by the workers comp insurance carrier, and conventional wisdom infers that the insurance carrier choose these physicians after vetting them, yet all of a sudden, if the doctor the workers compensation insurance carrier picked determines that a test or surgery which costs more than the insurance carrier wants to pay-the insurance provider argues that their doctor doesn't know what they are doing.).

This fact was further borne out by an article I ready earlier today from a utilization review organization. In it, they stated that one of their primary purposes was to push for legislative changes in workers compensation laws.

This Utilization Review organization is saying that they will act as a LOBBYIST FOR THE WORKERS COMPENSATION CARRIER. They cannot do this and still pretend to have the best interest of the injured worker as their primary goal.

If the treatment recommended for you by your treating physician has been denied due to a utilization review opinion, do not give up!!! Please call and speak with one of the experienced Alabama Workers Comepnsation Attorneys at Powell and Denny today.
