Can I Choose My Own Doctor?
If you are injured on the job in Ohio, you can see any doctor you choose for the first visit. However, after that, except in cases of emergency, the workers' compensation system will only pay for your medical bills if you use a health care provider who is certified by the Bureau of Workers' Compensation.
If your doctor is not certified, you can ask him or her to become certified.
What If My Work Injury Claim Is Denied?
If your work injury claim is denied by your employer's managed care organization (MCO), you have a right to appeal that decision using an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process. You may need to obtain an independent medical examination. Our lawyers will guide you through the process and ensure that your rights are protected.
You can also file an appeal if you do not agree with your medical treatment or decisions made by your MCO.
How Long Can My Medical Treatment Continue?
As long as your injury is work-related, your treatment can continue for as long as it is medically necessary.
Experienced staff: Medical billing is a highly specialized area. Our staff includes a professional who is dedicated to ensuring that your workers' compensation medical bills are paid promptly and correctly.
