Can Workers' Comp Deny A Second Opinion?
Can a second opinion about my claim be denied by the workers’ comp?
You can ask for a second opinion and get a court order to authorize it in case is not enabled.
Second Opinion Authorized for Workers' Comp
While the worker’s compensation insurance company can certainly deny/refuse to pay for a second opinion, that doesn’t mean you are not entitled to one.
We often have client’s who would like a second opinion, and if the insurance company won’t authorize it, we go to court and get a court order authorizing the second opinion/evaluation and compelling the insurance company to pay for the same.
