Question of the day: Why do I sign so many authorizations?


During the month of June, I am addressing common questions that get asked in our practice. Today’s Question is: Why do I sign so many authorizations?

Different medical providers often require different authorizations. Due to changes in the HIPAA law, many medical providers have come up with their own types of authorizations which over various areas of that law. Further, there are limited authorizations which we give the other side. It is not uncommon to see a new client come in with authorizations that their insurance company originally provided to them. The difference with our authorizations is they limit what it is that the other side is able to obtain and also most important limit or prevent the other side from talking directly to your doctors. We have seen cases where contact with the doctors of unrepresented clients has significantly affected not only opinions, but also an individual’s claim dramatically. This is probably one of the most significant areas where hiring a skilled and knowledgeable attorney makes the most sense.

These questions are not intended to replace a consultation with an attorney, nor do they take into consideration facts that may differ about your particular case. Here at the Injuryboard, we have experienced attorneys who can deal with your individual questions and best help you with your case. Feel free to get the help you need by contacting one of us.
