    Default Future Medical Award - Do I Have to Go Through Utilization Review

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: California. The case went to hearing and an award given in 2001 which contained future meds. I need medical treatment and various items such as a power lift chair, etc., and someone recently told me that I had to go through the Utilization Review process, even though my award was before the changes in California law requiring that procedure. I looked at the statutes and they appear to only apply to cases not final as of the effective date. Is that law retroactive to me? That's not fair. Lizzy
