Reasonable and necessary treatment under the Georgia Workers' Comp Act.

The Georgia Workers' Compensation Act requires an Employer/Insurer to pay for all reasonable and medically necessary medical treatment related to a job injury. Insurance carriers sometimes deny treatment or testing by alleging that it is not reasonable and/or necessary. It is important to remember that the insurance company does not have the final say in this matter. Ultimately, you can request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge at the State Board of Workers' Compensation to determine if the insurance company is required to provide the treatment. If your work comp carrier has denied treatment or testing in your case, you should contact Atlanta work comp attorney Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835.
