Obtaining Medical Treatment Under Workers' Compensation
Let Our Sacramento Attorneys Help You Get the Care You Need
When you suffer an injury or illness while performing the functions of
your job, you are probably concerned about how you will pay for the cost
of expensive medical treatment. Fortunately, workers' compensation
in the State of California entitles injured workers to financial compensation
to cover the cost of medical care.
The treatment options that may be available to your could range from traditional
medical care to less traditional options, such as chiropractic. Our
Sacramento workers' compensation lawyers at Smolich & Smolich have more than four decades of experience in
helping out clients get medical care following an on-the-job accident
and are ready to assist you right away.
Staying within the Medical Provider Network
After your injury or illness, it is important to understand where you go
to get the medical care you need. Most of the time employees must go to
a healthcare provider that is considered to be part of the employer's
or insurance company's medical provider network. By staying within
this network, you can ensure that the cost of your medical treatment will
be covered under worker's compensation.
- Worker's compensation may cover your:
- Doctor's visits
- Prescription medication
- Medical equipment and devices
Has Your Claim Been Denied?
If you have been hurt on the job there is absolutely no reason that you
should have to bear the burden of extremely expensive doctor's visits,
hospital stays, tests, surgeries, prescription medication, equipment,
and more. Unfortunately, the claims that you make for medical treatment
can be denied, and you may not know where to turn to for help. Our Sacramento
worker's compensation attorneys know how to effectively help you overturn
a denial and obtain the medical care you need to make a recovery.
