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 the event it is not authorized by the insurance carrier.
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.
