WHAT EVERY DOCTOR AND PATIENT SHOULD KNOW ABOUT WORKERS’ COMP MEDICAL MANAGEMENT

In Virginia workers’ compensation cases, medical management by the insurance company is prohibited. As the authorized treating physician, you may render any reasonable and necessary medical treatment which is related to the industrial accident. The insurance company cannot require that you do something or prohibit you from doing something. It cannot require that you refer your patient to a specific individual or facility. It cannot require pre-authorization. You call the shots!
