Do The Insurance Companies Call The Shots When It Comes To Doctor Visits?
No, but unfortunately, a lot of doctor's offices think so.
Here's how it works when you're on DC workers compensation.
The Process Does Not Take Up Your Time
Once you choose that doctor, they do not have to get every appointment authorized by the workers comp adjuster - this is a big waste of time, and many adjusters won't even do this. They won't call back or fax a form to the doctors office in time for your appointment and sometimes the doctor will cancel the appointment if he doesn't get this pre-approval.
All the doctor has to do is send the bill and report to the adjuster for payment after he sees you.
Specific treatment and tests - surgeries, MRI, physical therapy, etc. need to be approved, but this doesn't apply to routine visits with your treating physician.
