How to Get Reasonable or Necessary Medical Treatment
Buried in all the Connecticut Workers Compensation Title 31 Chapter 568 Statutes pages of "Thou Shall NOT" is this gem, " Thou Shall Care For Injured Workers"
Sec. 31-294d. Medical and surgical aid; hospital and nursing service. (a)(1) The employer, as soon as the employer has knowledge of an injury, shall provide a competent physician or surgeon to attend the injured employee and, in addition, shall furnish any medical and surgical aid or hospital and nursing service, including medical rehabilitation services and prescription drugs, as the physician or surgeon deems reasonable or necessary. The employer, any insurer acting on behalf of the employer, or any other entity acting on behalf of the employer or insurer shall be responsible for paying the cost of such prescription drugs directly to the provider.
Reasonable or Necessary medical treatment as determined by the physician or surgeon is the chief operative
clause of the Workers Compensation Statute, don't let them tell you otherwise. Stand your ground!
Why are we not getting what the statute and courts have ordered?
