Gabriella's Legal Insights No. 1

GHF at Work

January 30, 2018 -

 

EVER BEEN INJURED ON THE JOB?

EVER HAD A WORKERS’ COMPENSATION CLAIM?

IS IT LIKELY YOU WILL HAVE AN INJURY ON THE JOB?

IS IT LIKELY YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE A WORKERS’ COMPENSATION CLAIM?

 

IF YOUR ANSWER IS YES TO ANY OF THE ABOVE, THEN OPPOSE SENATE BILL 936.

STATE LAWMAKERS COULD LIMIT YOUR MEDICAL TREATMENTS.

• Under current law, injured workers have given up their right to sue in exchange for a system that provides timely and proper medical care. BILL 936 WOULD CHANGE THAT.

 

·       Senate Bill 936 would create a pre-approved list of drugs for workers’ compensation claims. This means that the insurance company – NOT your doctor – would be controlling your healthcare decisions. In other words, by creating a drug formulary, insurance companies can overrule your doctor and deny you the medicine that your doctor prescribed.

 

 We need to stop this harmful bill. Please call these instrumental State Representatives and voice your objection about this Bill – it will only take a few minutes of your time.
