Your doctor may order a specialized test such as an MRI, a CT Scan, or an EMG in order to better evaluate your injury. If this occurs, our Workers’ Compensation team will contact Workers’ Compensation offices and insurance carriers to have the test pre-authorized. We cannot schedule these specialized tests until they are authorized by Workers’ Compensation or the insurance carriers. This may take one to two weeks to obtain.
When the tests have been pre-authorized, one of our Procedure Schedulers will contact you. If the tests are denied, a member of the Workers’ Compensation team will contact you and your employer about the denial. We will do what we can to appeal the decision by making sure the medical documentation is accurate and in place.
