Mandatory settlement conference but why?
Ok it might sound like a pretty basic thing,but don't get why.I was suppose to have a hearing on non payment of ttd,multiple denials of medical treatments(including a surgery or two)and etc..on 1/5/10 and i was hoping to get in front of a judge.Now my hearing has turned into a MSC.I 'm confused ,along with the fact i have a PQME on the 1/14/10.I don't think i'm close to P&S.So i know i don't have to settle anything ,but how can we get ths point with out barely any treatment.Any info is appreciated.I'm in Ca.Plus what i read so far now i might not even speak to a judge from what i read online.
What is a Mandatory Settlement Conference?
The first time you go to workers' compensation court, known as the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board, it will probably be for a Mandatory Settlement Conference or "M.S.C."

The law requires a conference with all parties present prior to trial. The parties are required to attempt to settle the case but if they cannot they are required to agree what issues exist. For instance, might agree that you were injured and disagree over the extent of your disability.

Attendance at the conference is "mandatory." It is not mandatory that we settle the case, only that we try to. Sometimes, this will be the first time that anyone from the insurance company has seriously looked at the case in terms of settlement. Some insurance adjusters have responsibility for hundreds of cases and just cannot get around to each one until they are forced to.
