What if group health insurance is not available? - Workers Comp.

There are other options if group health insurance is not available. You may be able to obtain health care coverage through Michigan Medicaid. This is a state program that assists individuals with low income and limited assets by providing health insurance.

You will be expected to pay Medicaid back for any medical treatment that should have been paid through workers compensation. Medicaid pays low rates and it is sometimes difficult to find a doctor who will accept this form of insurance. You might not be able to get all the medical treatment required for your injury.

Medicare is a type of health insurance provided by the federal government for people who are disabled. You will receive Medicare if your are approved for Social Security disability benefits. But there is a 29- month wait period after your disability date. Medicare is accepted by most doctors and hospitals. Medicare will conditionally pay when workers compensation will not. You must reimburse Medicare for any conditional payments that are made if you are successful in your workers comp case.

Does using other insurance replace work comp medical care?

While using other health insurance is an option to get medical care, it should not replace workers compensation. You will not have any co-pays or deductibles under workers compensation. Your medical treatment is unlimited and can be paid for life.

Do not let your employer tell you to use your own health insurance instead of workers compensation. This is not correct and shifts the costs of medical care to parties who are not responsible for your work injury.

What is a Workers Compensation Control Date? - Grand Rapids Workers Compensation Attorney

A Workers Compensation Control Date is a pretrial date where both attorneys to a workers compensation case meet with the workers compensation magistrate to make sure that all medical records  has been exchanged and that the case is moving toward a final resolution. Workers Compensation Control dates happen every 60 days.  A number of them may happen before a workers compensation magistrate will set a firm workers compensation trial date. These hearings can be very important because they give both sides the opportunity to develop the issues and discuss resolution.
