Hospital Fee Schedule In Illinois
Recent changes in the law have made a drastic reduction in medical fee schedule reimbursements. The reimbursement schedule has been reduced by four geographical areas. Now, large cities are being lumped with other smaller suburbs. This causes issues because the cost of living in a large city, like Chicago, is much different than the cost of living in other smaller suburbs.
This change also puts caps on costly procedures, which can leave an injured worker in a situation where they are refused access to care. Insurance companies continuously try to deny, delay and stall matters so that the injured worker does not get the treatment they need. You can trust the attorneys at Strong Law Offices to protect your interests and stand up against the insurance company. We will make sure that you have access to care and your choice in physician. Many medical providers now refuse to provide medical treatment to injured workers due to caps on medical fees. This is yet another tool that insurance carriers now utilize to limit access to quality medical care.
