Injured workers face a difficult challenge to obtain the appropriate benefits from the Montana workers’ compensation system. Decisions by the Montana Supreme Court and the Montana Workers’ Compensation Court are combined with the Montana Workers’ Compensation Act to deliver benefits to injured workers to provide medical and wage loss benefits to help them return to work. But if you are an injured worker, adjusters try to use those laws and decisions to get you in and out of the system as quickly as possible at the lowest cost possible.
The Montana Utilization and Treatment Guidelines
One of the primary tactics adjusters used to limit your medical benefits is by trying force your doctor to use administrative guidelines called the Montana Utilization and Treatment Guidelines.
Unfortunately, many doctors believe they are “stuck” with the guidelines. Adjuster and nurse case managers often represent the doctor that the treatment guidelines are a “law” they must follow. That’s false. These are “guidelines” and your doctor should only be worried about recommending treatment that is reasonable and necessary.
A Bozeman workers’ compensation attorney can help make sure the doctor understands. The workers’ compensation attorney at Montana Work Comp Solutions actually trained adjusters on the treatment guidelines before returning to private practice to represent injured workers.
Other Montana Workers’ Compensation Benefits
An experienced Bozeman workers’ compensation attorney from Montana Work Comp Solutions can help steer you to the right conclusion and help you get the benefits you deserve under the Montana Workers’ Compensation Act.
Depending on the facts of your claim, you could be eligible for wage loss benefits such as temporary total or temporary partial disability benefits while you are healing. Once you have reached your maximum healing, you should be considered for permanent partial disability benefits.
If your work injury as left you with a lot of restrictions, permanent total disability may be considered. The resource page at the Montana Work Comp Solutions website has a booklet, Hurt at Work, that you can download for free and find out all about the Montana workers’ compensation system.
