My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Montana
I am wondering if anyone has had to write a letter to the WC Adjuster because of medical benefits being delayed. I do not have an attorney representing me as of yet but I talked to my attorney and he told me to start a mediation process...see if that will get my medical benefits reinstated. He is willing to take my case but doesn't want to step in until he absolutely has to. I have been recieving medical benefits for a year now with seeing my orthopedic doctor and physical therapy. 7 weeks ago my WC adjuster required me to have an IME....but as of yet she has not recieved the results of the IME so she will not allow me to continue physical therapy. I didn't realize it took so long to get the IME results back....but according to the adjuster the IME doctor is backed up and it could be a few more weeks.
I am wondering if any of you have had to write a letter to your adjuster requesting medical reinstatement. According to the state WC board I have to write a letter requesting my demands....send it to WC adjuster and wait 15 days before I can file a motion for mediation.
Does anyone know what I put into this letter? Do I just mention the medical benefits or do I have to mention something about a settlement?
I JUST DONT WANT TO SUBMIT LETTER REQUESTING MEDICAL BENEFIT REINSTATEMENT....AND THEN COME TO FIND OUT THEY WONT OFFER ME A SETTLEMENT DOWN THE ROAD BECAUSE I DIDN'T PUT IT IN THE REQUIRED DEMAND LETTER.
