What is a “Peer Review” and Why Is My Case Now Denied?

by FranksKoenig NeuweltOct 30, 20180 comments

What is a “Peer Review” and Why Is My Case Now Denied?

A Peer Review doctor is a doctor hired by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company for the sole purpose of obtaining a medical opinion upon which they can and will rely to deny necessary medical care to which you are entitled to and in need of.

Let’s review:
1. You get hurt at work;
2. You are required by Florida workers’ compensation law to go to the doctor the insurance company selects;
3. Your doctor, that they picked, requests medical care to treat your injury;
4. Your workers’ compensation insurance company denies care based on the opinions of a doctor who has never examined or spoken to you.

Confusing, right?

If you are asking yourself, “How is that right?” then the answer is, “It is not right.” However, it is a maneuver available to the workers’ compensation insurance company. If your workers’ compensation adjuster has denied you medically necessary treatment based on the opinions of a peer review doctor, call one of the experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt today. We can, and have, fought the insurance companies on this very issue and successfully obtained medical care the peer review tried to deny.

If your workers’ compensation case has been derailed by an insurance company’s peer review doctor, call us right away so we can put your case back on track. Call (561) 616-3800 or contact us online to speak with one of the dedicated workers’ compensation attorneys at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt today.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
