Workers comp not paying the medical bills, North Carolina
#1
Working as a LEO and received an injury and a trip to the ER, pharmacy, and some follow ups. Incident occurred early May 2018.

I had received one or two of bills that I forwarded to my claim manager and thought everything was good, never saw a bill from ER.

I was about to buy a car and decided to check the ol credit score...I have claims against me for medical debt for around $2,500 and my credit score tanked. I disputed the claim and lost, which lowered my score even more.

I informed my HR department, the medical provider, workers comp. Nothing has been done and being treated like garbage and an inconvenience. I also have not been reimbursed for the pharmacy after written requests.

I received another bill today for the same incident in the mail, 10 months after the incident, threatening collection action. I spoke with them and they have been sending bills to my employer's hr address and nothing is paid, another $457 due they say on top of what's outstanding. Expecting more to show up in the mail.

Any advice would be great. Do I have a case for a grievance or lawsuit? Is it worth the time? I'm back at work, which is more than a lot of people can say, so I'm grateful. Thanks for your time.

Notify the medical provider in writing that it’s a work comp claim and give them the name of the carrier. The bills should go to the nsurance carrier. Send a copy of your notice to the comp carrier along with a copy of the medical bill.
Different states have different rules.

“If a claim is denied by the insurance company or self-insurer, the employee may request a hearing before the Industrial Commission by submitting a Form 33, Request for Hearing.

Medical providers may bill the employee only after it has finally been determined that it is not a compensable workers’ compensation claim.”
