Often, the workers’ compensation carrier delays paying medical bills for various reasons. In our practice, we have had employees communicate concerns that the carrier’s failing to pay the medical bills will affect their credit.
Under Florida Law, if the insurance carrier authorizes treatment, then the insurance carrier, and not the employee, is responsible for the payment of medical bill. If the carrier does not pay the medical bill, then the employee may be required to seek assistance from the Division of Administrative Hearing to get the medical bill paid.
At the Law Office of J.J. Talbott, we help our clients to get the medical bills paid by using other laws and statutes against the insurance company.
