Workers’ Compensation FAQs[otw_shortcode_content_toggle title=”Q: What do I need to do in order to establish my workers’ compensation eligibility?” opened=”closed”] The specific requirements for establishing workers’ compensation eligibility depend on whether you work for the federal government, a state or local agency, or a private employer. Generally speaking, however, the single most important thing you can do is to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. At Pain Stop MD, our Dallas TX workers’ compensation doctors are knowledgeable about the federal, state, and private workers’ compensation systems, and we can help walk you through filing your claim for benefits.
[/otw_shortcode_content_toggle] [otw_shortcode_content_toggle title=”Q: Am I entitled to choose my own workers’ compensation doctor?” opened=”closed”] The answer to this question also depends on the nature of your employment. For example, while the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) allows federal employees to choose their own physicians, in most non-emergency cases, private employees will be required to see a physician within their employer’s provider network. But, not all employers have designated provider networks, and there are various other factors to take into consideration as well. If you contact us, we will be happy to help you make sure your medical treatment is eligible for coverage.
[/otw_shortcode_content_toggle] [otw_shortcode_content_toggle title=”Q: What should I do if my employer (or its insurance company) is saying I need to go back to work even though my injury isn’t fully healed?” opened=”closed”] If your employer’s insurance company is claiming that you have reached your maximum medical improvement (MMI) or that you otherwise are no longer entitled to medical benefits, it is critical that you not take this claim at face value. It is common practice for workers’ compensation insurance companies to attempt to terminate benefits too soon; and, if you are not ready to go back to work, we can help establish your need for continued benefits.
How We Can Help with Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
While the federal, state, and private workers’ compensation systems are designed to help ensure that injured workers can obtain treatment for their job-related injuries without concern for the cost of medical treatment, securing medical benefits can be challenging. From completing the necessary paperwork to proving that you were injured on the job (as opposed to on personal time), there are numerous steps involved that require a detailed understanding of the rules and regulations that apply. At Pain Stop MD, we will help you with your workers’ compensation claim by:
- Providing an accurate diagnosis that establishes your injury as work-related.
- Beginning treatment immediately so that there is no justification for the insurance company or government to deny your claim.
- Providing the documentation and guidance you need to successfully file for workers’ compensation.
- Supplying any medical records required in order for you to obtain or continue receiving benefits.
- Answering any questions you may have about your injury or your claim for benefits.
