Medical Care: Workers' Compensation insurance provides medical, surgical, optometric or other attendance or treatment necessitated by the work-related injury or illness without cost to the injured worker. The cost is paid by the employer or its insurance carrier, and the health care provider may not collect a fee from the patient. Sometimes, the insurance carrier may object to the length or type of treatment or to the amount the provider has billed for treatment. Generally, the insurance carrier notifies the parties of its objection by filing this form (C-8.1).
