My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: VT
Hello, a few weeks ago my Dr. took me out of work completely (until at least May) and filled in FMLA forms that my employer requested. My employer then communicated with the claims adjuster reguarding using workers comp. insurance to cover my salary while I am not working. I followed up with my employer to see how things were going and if there was anything the Insurance Company would need from me. They said that they had just spoke with the insurance company and the claim is now being handled by a different claims adjuster there, and that I should hear soon. On Friday I got the name of the new CA and contacted her directly to ask if there was anything that I needed to do for her or if she could give me any other info. She said she is still reviewing the case and will get back to me.
Does anyone know if the insurance company has any sort of time limits they have to respond within? I am going to try contacting them again tomorrow, but figured I'd check here until then.
It's been over 3 weeks now and I have not received any pay and finances are getting very tight.
Thank you very much.
PS. I should probably state that this is a 1.5 year old WC case and up until this point I have not had many issues with insurance.
