The elephant in the room is this: The state passes workers' compensation reform laws that allow the carrier to decline to pay for necessary medical treatment. By their rules, the care is not needed and the injured worker cannot obtain it through the state system. Then, the worker self-procures the denied treatment through Medicare, which proves it was medically necessary. Later, the injured worker receives a bill from Medicare threatening them, without due process I might add, to pay a judgment for the care which is declared a "conditional payment."
