Only 6% of treatment requests are modified or denied ? Thats got to be the most unbelievable statistic I have ever heard.

Many claims administrators send ever single request for medical treatment to UR, which routinely deny the request for medical treatment, which is them rubber stamped by IMR. This is despite the fact it is an admitted case, and the applicant is treating in the MPN.

No matter how you present it, we all know its a system currently designed to routinely deny medical treatment, without any effective basis for an appeal. Sad days for anyone unfortunate enough to be injured at work.
