    Smile Employer is Slow to Authorize and Pay For Treatments


    Hello to make a long story short my employer that I've worked for for a long time is giving me the run around about getting a procedure done that I have had done inthe past & they approved & paid for. They also are not paying bills like they said they were. Last week I received 2 past due notices for bills that they should of paid all ready. I really don't know what to do. They are not communicating with me. Never had any problems in the past. Time to talk to a lawyer??
    I don't know who to talk to so I can get this taken care of and move on. So confused, annoyed & mad.
    Thank you to anyone that could possible help me.

    Yup...time to lawyer up. Doesn't cost anything for consultation, fees are awarded based on your PPD award, or benefits secured for you through litigation/court. Don't delay.

    Thank you. Hard to do that while still working for them. Not easy to go into work everyday either

    Is your employER self insured, and/or a TPA...Third Party Administrator handling the claim, or are you receiving benefits administered by a insurance company ?

    There should be ONE person assigned to handle your claim.

    You should not be receiving bills or notices from any provider, those should go directly to the CA/Claims Adjuster.
    If/when you receive bills etc, forward them to the CA.
    Notify the provider, in writing, you are being treated for a work injury, and all billing should go to the CA.
