If you were injured in an accident at work or are suffering from a work-related disease in Iowa, you are entitled to seek medical treatment paid for by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider. Under the terms of the insurance agreement, however, the doctor must be approved by the Iowa Workers’ Compensation Commission.
Every medical bill and out-of-pocket expense related to the medical care will be paid, but only if you use a medical provider selected by your employer or insurance carrier. Under very specific circumstances, options may be available for going outside of the workers’ compensation provider system for alternative medical care, which may require a special approval hearing.
If you are having a problem receiving medical treatment after a work related accident, call an attorney at Loney & Schueller at 515-225-4485 as soon as possible. We will work aggressively to help protect your rights. We will fight for the medical treatment you deserve, as well as an appropriate disability monetary settlement, if your work injury or occupational disease keeps you out of work.
