    Default New Law Regarding Mileage Reimbursement

    I submitted a claim for mileage reimbursement, 2 months ago, and was informed today that a new law in effect states an insurer can withhold payment of mileage until the case settles. The mileage form still states payment "within 45 days."

    I have been searching for the new Labor Code reflecting this, but cannot find it. Is this a new law? Thanks,

    Well, I was just informed that DOR's for medical mileage reimbursement are a waste of time and judges usually do not rule on them. Laws are laws; no wonder the system is a mess.

    You go to court on disputed medical issues... not mileage reimbursement.
    All you can do is file a petition for penalties to protect your postion. If you don't with 2 years... you won't get any penalty awarded.
    There is really no way to force the payment of mileage... it's often used as a negotiation tool when the claim resolves...but, at some point if the petition is filed...a judge will award mileage. You don't file a DOR with a petition.
