Coronavirus COVID-19 Work Exposure:

If you have time off of work or need medical care because you believe you were exposed at work:
YOU MUST FILE an “Employee Report of Injury” (found here) within thirty days of having reason to believe you got it because of work!
If the employer or its insurer fail to pay your time loss and medical care within two weeks of your report or dispute or controvert any part of the claim, contact us by email or by phone at 907-279-9132. We are still hard at work for injured workers!

Ensuring That Medical Providers Are Paid

Injured workers are not the only people who can be wronged by workers’ comp denials. Health care providers frequently find that their services have been downgraded, underpaid or not paid at all. Our firm represents health care providers who have been deprived of payment by employers’ insurance carriers.

Workers’ injuries can be a substantial part of a clinic’s caseload. But, such cases are time-consuming and involve more paperwork than other clients. Additionally, there are no requirements that a workers’ comp insurer pre-authorize treatment. Understandably, the shortfalls caused by underpayment and nonpayment have a pronounced, negative effect on a clinic’s bottom line.

Representing Health Care Providers In Medical Insurance Payment Claims

The most common forms of nonpayment and underpayment include:

  • Denial of payment, because the insurance carrier disagrees about the extent of the injury or the treatment administered
  • Improper payment based on what they customarily pay for a treatment
  • Underpayment based on miscalculations of the fee schedule
  • Nonpayment without any stated legal basis — they just don’t pay

Your Insurance Payment Attorneys

When this happens, the first line of recourse for providers is to request adjudication of the matter before the Alaska Workers’ Compensation Board. It is always wise to work with a law firm that is adept at advanced workers’ compensation law when making such an appeal — a law firm like Rehbock & Wilson. Our firm enjoys a high rate of recovery for clients, in line with existing fee schedules or with the treatment contract that was in effect.

Our lawyers can help you to file the paperwork requesting proper payment. We will stand by you at all hearings. We will obtain expert testimonies on the value of treatments and take depositions of witnesses — whatever is warranted by the case at hand.

As a workers’ compensation firm, we do all work, including medical underpayment cases, on a contingency basis. You pay us nothing.
