  • Can a worker be MMI if needed treatment is denied?
  • Does a Refusal to Authorize Treatment increase Permanent Disability?
  • Tolling the 104 TTD Cap during illegal treatment delay?
  • Return to work issues raised by Denial of Treatment
  • Obtaining an Accurate MSA in the face of Treatment Denials
  • Quality of Evidence Supporting Treatment Requests
  • Invalid UR and Insurance Bad Faith
  • Medical Board Jurisdiction over UR Reviewers
  • Invalid UR and Loss of Medical Control
