How can I get my medical bills paid?

Revised Code § 4123.54 provides that every employee who is injured or who contracts an occupational disease is entilted to receive such medical, nursing, and hospital services as are auhtorized under chapter 4123 of the Revised Code. Section 4123.66 authorizes the Administrator of the Bureau of Workers' Compensation to pay such amounts from the State Insurance Fund for such medical services, nursing services, hospital services, and medicine as the Administrator "deems proper." The Bureau and the Industrial Commission retain broad discretion in deciding whether to approve or disapprove payments for medical benefits. 

Any treatment requests that are sent to the MCO are supposed to go through a three-part test called the Miller test, which holds that an injured worker may receive medical benefits if (1) the request for treatment is causally realted to the industrial injury, (2) the requested services are reasonably necessary and appropriate for the treatment of the industrial injury, and (3) the costs of the servies must be medically reasonable. 

If you have medical bills due to a work place or industrial injury, contact The Bainbridge Firm for benefits that may cover those expenses.
