Workers' comp adjusters generally have a large number of files on their desks, and it frequently takes them a long time to authorize medical treatment. They also have an incentive to delay authorization of medical treatment or testing because it frustrates the patient and makes their life difficult. Doctors and their assistants also contribute to the problem when they fail to respond to requests for medical records or additional information in a timely fashion.
