What Role Does a Doctor Play in Workers’ Comp Claims?
The doctor handling a workers’ compensation claim injury plays an important role in how that claim progresses and the benefits the claimant can eventually receive. This is because your work injury care doctor is the connection between the claimant and the insurance company. Reports from that doctor will describe the patient’s injuries, how they likely happened, and what treatments or tests will be needed in the future. The details in those reports can influence the insurer to approve or deny a claim or adjust the amount of coverage provided.
As an employer, you will want to find a doctor you can trust to understand the needs of your employee after a workplace injury and what you require as the workers’ comp policyholder. A doctor who specializes or focuses on work-related injuries and patients will know what to include in medical reports and how to answer any questions you might have about what to do next. As an injured employee, you will also want a doctor who is familiar with this particular role because you need to be comfortable with them enough to share the full details of your injuries and symptoms.
