From the first day that you begin working with your employer, as a health care worker, you should be protected by your company’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. That is not to say that the insurance company will not deny your claim. In fact, you should expect the insurance company to deny your claim, as paying out on your claim is going to cost them money.

  •   Lack of proper medical documentation
  •   Failure to provide other types of supporting documentation
  •   The insurance company says you have a pre-existing or degenerative condition
  •   The insurance company says you’ve fully recovered and can return to work
  •   Making mistakes on the first report of injury
